    How to add a third battery???

    I have two batteries on a battery switch with positions 1,2 or both. Has anyone put a battery in parallel on position 1 or 2? Volts should stay the same, but I think the amperage available would go up. This would be OK allowing longer service to my radio and frig. Anyone done this? I really don't want to put another battery switch in.

    I have installed a number of the units
    that West Marine sells "XANTREX" and
    have had no real problems.
    What I like is having spare parts at
    any store or Fed X.
