Which Battery?

I decided to add a second battery since I have been adding accessories. I'm pretty sure I'll go with an Odyssey but which one do you guy's recommend. Right now my biggest problem is my electric heater only put's out heat while I'm moving with higher rpm's once I come to a stop it put's out little to nothing just blows cool air. So I figured I'd add the second bettery hoping it would solve the problem. In my case would I be better off with a isolator or run them together with out. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Update: I just finished an email with Stan at Battery Mart (Best price I could find on a Odyssey 925 battery) he told me Odyssey does not recommend there batteries for my application because of there strong military grade lead batteries need a constant 12 or higher amps to fully recharge and Odyssey doesn't belief the Commander is capable of doing so. If I was to use it and they found out what it was used for the warranty would be void. Because I already explained to him what I was doing I won't purchase there but for everyone else I just wanted to give a heads up.

If it helps I ran Harley Davidson secondary battery mounted under driver seat. Then ran a 2 gage wire to a marine perko selector switch under dash to select between batteries. Then ran 2 gage wire from main battery positive side to perko switch. Then 2 gage wire from perko switch to a power block with 6 outlets for accessories. Both batteries or grounded in separate places. The Harley Davidson battery has 28 amp hours. Runs my Audioform roof with 4 speakers for 8 hours with out charging. Harley battery I purchased for $175.00 at my local HD store. Hope this helps out.

I run Optima Red tops in my Grizzly 700 and Rhino 660. Will probably do the same to the Commander after a little research on its charging system.
