|I have 2 factory batteries with switches in my '03 SAN. I am thinking about just adding a third in parallel to my front battery and run all of the amps off of those 2 paralle batteries. Will my stock alternator handle it? Running about 1,750 RMS. Thanks.|
|I did the same thing. I put 2 blue tops in the front. I run off of just the front and the back battery is my reserve. I run 1300 RMS and haven't had any problems, but I don't run my ballast at the same time as the stereo, and I don't push the stereo hard all the time. At 1750 RMS you are going to be close. If your alternator is not keeping up with the current load on one battery two batteries will only give you more time before they drain.|

|isnt 1750 rpms lugging the engine while pulling a boarder with people and ballast in the boat?? Seems the boats dont start making power till around 2300-2500??|
|RMS = Continuous watts to the stereo. |
RPM = Engine speed.
I misread it at first too.
