I am going to try this, a friend of mine who is a long term user of auxiliary batteries in 4wds has done this and he does not wish to go back to the optima deep cycles as they are 3 to 4 times the cost.

I did more cabling between alternator and starter battery last night, also extra ground from starter battery to body.
