Default 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.
