This might be dumb but why couldn't you put a set of diodes on the second battery like they used to do in the old camper special pickups back in the 70s and 80s

Automotive Battery Install

Troy it may be a issue of the winch size. And the slower low watt charging. We were running 10k+ with 147 amp at idle 230 at 1500 rpm.

Of course a 52 amp charger is a trickle charge compared to 230 amp, lol

Any recommendations on the size of battery to replace the stock
Battery. I have a 2012 commander 1000 Ltd with the fox air shocks so there is no room under the driver seat and the current location under the steering colum is too cluttered. I was thinking about relocating the battery location with a larger lawn mower or car battery and build an enclosure to mount on top of the center console between the seats ina battery box. Does anyone See an issue with doing this ?

I installed an oem size second battery up beside the glovebox with a factory cage. Works great !
