I just added solar to my cargo, and I'm considering supplementing it with an isolator to charge my deep cycle battery off the alternator when the car is moving. Has anyone installed a smart battery isolator to charge a deep cycle battery? If so, where did you put it? Photos would be great!

I too have solar on my roof, a single large panel in my case. To charge my Trojan battery AGM battery from the alternator, I installed a Sterling battery to battery charger. It seemed easier to install than a battery isolator. More importantly, it does a 4 stage charging cycle. I don't know how the Metris alternator/charging system works- I could not find any info on the issue. But it was another good reason to install a charger that I could set to properly charge my aux battery.

Here's a thread on how I did it. https://www.metrisforum.com/forum/4...attery-battery-charger-install.html#post74250
