    Hello all, names Richard. Just signed up to this site. From Virginia. Chevy's for a long time, trucks and cars. Currently have a 2006 Chevy Silverado LT 2500HD 8.1L Allison 4x4 Extd Cab. Black. She's my baby! Bought new in 06. Looking forward to reading the forums and need some help with dual battery issue which I'll be posting as soon as I can figure out how to do it, haha.

    There are a number of ways to go about dual batteries. Which is right for you depends on (in this order):
    1. The needs of your setup (do you need isolation? does it need to be one-way? two-way? Is voltage drop acceptable, or not? Is reliability a critical factor? etc.)
    2. Your budget
    3. Your ability or willingness to do the work yourself, and do it correctly

    I've got a dual battery setup, but mine's extreme and definitely not for everyone (it's absolutely not budget-friendly, and is overkill for most people). If you PM me what you're trying to accomplish I may be able to help.
