battery doctor

I am not sure if anyone else has tried something like this, but I thought it would work great vs. having to remember to flip a switch.....

I have installed this "Battery Doctor" picked it up at Fleet farm, it is an automatic battery isolater, that detects voltage based on the alternator running or not. So it isolates my deep cycle from my starting battery when the boat is off.

Does this not require running the isolator to the ignition ??

No ignition input required. It monitors voltage on the main/ or starter battery.

Which rests at about 11.5-12.5 volts when the engine is off and will jump to 13-15 volts when the alternator/ engine are running. Then it connects the 2 batteries in parallel allowing the deep cycle to be charged.

So, it seems all the previous methods require the same battery types. Would this BattDR need to be the same battery type also? I'd really like to have a deep cycle and a starting battery.

Doesn't say that you cannot have 2 different types. I have a marine starting for main battey and marine deep cycle for aux/ stereo.

i instaled a ss598 Solenoid. The auto part person told me it was the same thing as a Borg Warner R3098.
After 30 minutes of riding, the isolator caught on fire and the ignition breaker went off... We had a lot of smoke coming off the observer seat. Luckily, it dind't do any damage to my elecgtrical system.
can someone confirm the spec of the ss598 solenoid ?
