I have 3 new blue top 34m batteries. They are not the deep cycle variety (D34M).
What are the drawbacks of using them as a battery bank for the stereo. I traded for them, so I can't return and was just thinking of using them until they were no longer good - but, unsure how long this may be because they are advertised as "starting" batteries. The RC is 100 minutes and the deep cycle version is 120. Am I ok using them? Because they are "starting" batteries, how should they best be maintained to prolong?
Also, recs on how to wire the battery bank? I bought a blue sea 9001e, but that's the extent. How should I mount the switch? Pics? Any battery mounts? Seen some cool billet mounts for optimas on ebay.
Lastly, when I do replace, I know Deka is a preferred brand,, but are diehard platinums any good? Specs look incredible.
SSorry for so many questions. Thanks in advance.
