Mounting it permanently seems like it would look like crap. And frankly I'd only really need it when we are using the stereo a lot, or when the boat sits a lot. Normal use seems to be handled by the batteries easily.
I have the bimini up pretty much all the time when we're on our home lake. Thinkin that maybe it could be semi permanently stuck on the bimini. If it's all black, it would be kinda tough to see from more than 20' or 30' away, or from inside the boat. When I fold up the bimini, I'd take it down too.
So looking at the back of the Perko, what terminal(s) do you hook up to and have it still isolate the engine/alternator? Seems like if I hook it up to the ALL side, I have to leave the Perko on ALL for it to charge. Is that isolated?
