Split charging batteries

Recommendations for equipment
Posted: 14 Nov 2019 - By: Richard Ritchie

I am redoing the charging system on my Bowman 40, and removing diode splitter.  Any experience and recommendations for charge sharing device?  e.g. Voltage sensitive Relay, SmartBank, Echocharge. 

I intend to give first charge to house batteries (from all sources: solar, wind, alternator, ac charger), then to engine once volts come up.   Ideally I also want to prevent overcharge of (much smaller) engine battery.
