    Well I am retired and its hard enough controlling the flow. Its at least 50% more for the stuff here as well. One day I may have to replace my cooling fan which is a more important expense. There aren't any sources up here to get them reasonably priced. 2nd battery isn't on most peoples needed list if they even have one.

    It fine as you have an ample flow of funds. We all don't have that luxury. I make the most of what I have and doesn't need to be cutting edge. It works and gets me from point A to B pretty good.

    Cheers, as its December now!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS !!

    Paying OEM prices for simple accessories is a good option for people with no mechanical skills. Just look at all the $250-$300 turn signal kits that contain $50 worth of parts.

    I agree, I tend to do most of my stuff myself whenever possible!!! I haven't had the need to consider this as we're able to use old school signaling in town etc (Arms, Up, down out etc). Works for me, I am not sure how many driver actually know this though.

    Doesn't sound like you really need the 2nd battery.
    We did a thread on here for Stator specs.
    I have ran a 250w light bar, 120w fogs and redlined a 4500# warn winch with no issues.
    Search this forum for the thread.

    Sorry about that, It was a discussion on the Facebook group.
    "-X2/X4 has a 14 volt, 598 watt stator output."

    Edit: It also produces 50 Amps.
    Just always run a good quality battery & life should be good.

    Tex- on my previous Rhino and also on my Wolv I have used a manual boat battery switch very successfully for several years. If you are in tune with the vehicle's voltage performance it will work flawlessly as mine has. I have a digital voltage meter on my switch panel. On Wolv I used a larger AGM under my seat to which the winch and seat heater is connected and so whenever using those devices I make sure the switch is on that battery. I also use the bigger battery for night riding when using the trail lights. I manage the system for the OEM battery, and use it semi-frequently to keep charged, as my backup starter battery (which I have never had to use). You only need to be aware to never shut off the battery switch while running, as I have heard it could fry some diodes or something in the stator/rectifier. I shut off the batteries at night and when in storage and it does not affect the ECU memory other than losing clock time, but I have never had a parasitic drain or anything else with managing the batteries that way. I have a couple of always hot circuits for my two way radio and my trail tablet, that I want to have active at lunch and breaks without logging hours with key on. This management of the batteries is all on me and does not depend on a piece of electronic gear to shift voltages. The system was created for and works great on boats where it can be a critical issue, and I figured it would work well out on the trail. And has!
    However if you do not desire to be as active in managing your wheels then maybe this approach is not for you. It's not a big deal but does need some attention.
