Very impressive unit. How much is it?

The ratings are much better than the Surepower unit I have now, I do like the functionality on the SUrepower and it has served me for a number of years just fine though.

that's about right on the price ...couple of different places to get it from. I don't have any photos of what I had but it pretty much comes down to making it fit where you can. The installation is pretty strait forward and you decide how to wire accessories.

I'm confident enough in my current setup to leave well enough alone.

I'm interested in the discussion though because I will be changing out intergators when I setup solar and a generator since my surepower is uni directional. The blue sea looks promising. I will also need meters on both banks and blue sea has some nice ones. I'm using their aux fuse box to distribute power now and I'm happy with the quality of it. So blue sea maybe. There are some nice new setup from

that will bend your mind and break your bank.

But still the main focus of this discussion was intended to be which battery does the winch attach to. Right now I'm not seeing a difference in one over the other.

You're limited first by your alternator. Then the capacity of the relay if you're off the second battery. And then by the function of the integrator relay and if it will allow both batteries to be joined and work together. I'm pretty sure the sure power does some voltage reading and makes a choice based on those readings weather or not to combine the batteries. It's only if the primary battery is at a lower reading than the second and the second has 13.3v or more.

Time for a beer.

That is a pretty good price for that unit. Can probably just do a simple wire change to fit it, if I ever need to replace my Surepower unit.
