97' Response LX dual battery setup

Recommended Posts

I have a 1997 response lx im looking to add a dual battery setup with a Blue seas 7650 kit which is a switch and ACR. I have the switch with batteries and bus bar setup as well as the grounds but the only part im stuck on is the positive cables for each battery. I need to know where the power is distributed to the rest of the boat so i can set it up to the other battery. i think i know how to setup the starting battery but anyone who has done this or knows about the systems please any help is appreciated.

This is how I have mine set up.  You'll see there are several ways to hook it up, but in this particular instance the wiring is such that when the switch if OFF and the onboard charger is plugged in that the ACR cannot engage and parallel the batteries.
