Battery isolator?

I would like a smallish battery isolator to charge main & secondary battery. Second one being for c-pap.

I have used second battery several times and it works good for 1-2 nights. Then I have to charge. This means I have to carry charger. Figure w/ small isolator I could charge while riding.

I am not opposed to making one if someone has some plans....

Battery Isolator

Check this out: www.powerstream.com
Select the "solid state 80 amp battery isolator". This is what I've been using to charge my aux battery that powers my CPAP. Good luck

Lots of 4x4s run a second battery for fridges etc which are charged while traveling using a Dual battery kit (Redarc etc) and a deep cycle 2nd battery. The 2nd battery is trickle charged to full. Accessaries are run off the 2nd whilst the main is left for starting. Alternator size may be the only issue.

Isolator

the battery I have been using is out of a BMW LT.

About the same as the 2007 GSA that I want to set this up on.

Think there are any issues with the CANBUS?
