I am a Locksmith. I use an invertor only for making keys and sometimes running a Dremel or drill for short periods.
Is it okay to connect to the Auxiliary battery for this type of use?
It seems fairly complicated going to the starting battery.
Thanks for any information you can provide.

The auxiliary battery is a 95 Ah AGM battery under the driver's seat. It is an option. It's fine to use it. I will be using it to power a B2B charger.
Which battery are you describing?

The recommended wire size was 4/0. I don't see any way to use that size with the extremely limited room there is under the seat. There no way to get a wire that size hooked up to it:)
Not much in the choice area for the connector either. I tried already but wasn't satisfied with the tight fit. It was near impossible to move the battery back and forth with the large size wire. I think I'm going with a smaller wire and a 200A inline fuse.
