oh definitely, the lower voltage batteries only need half the cells in the same general space.. all things equal a 6v battery will always have thicker plates and more lead-per-cell than a 12v, and thats what makes a deep cycle really.. if you can fit two 6v under the hood do it, though you'll probably have to settle for a tiny lil deka starting battery but there's nothing really wrong with that.. you dont really need a big heavy battery just for getting your engine running, especially if you have a nice house bank for everything else.

No. The DCDC goes near the target battery.

A dedicated round trip circuit of thick enough* gauge from the Alt/Starter circuit to the DCDC.

With an Anderson in between.

*depends on current and round trip distance, see Blue Sea Circuit Wizard app. A 3-5% voltage drop is OK if you want to save money, but do not skimp so much you risk a fire, Fuse of course will help, set 15-20% higher current

This spot has a deal for Memorial Day, they are sold out of the 20A as Renogy is sold out too... Supposed to get stock in July i was told.

Regardless the 40A can be bought for 160$ till Tomorrow.

Anyone order from them before?

Edit: Adjusted date as memorial sale ends the 31 but renogy sale ends tomo
I have the 20A - works great on 100Ah AGM.

I think i sold myself on the 20a being sufficient, but sold out 😢

Might be a good excuse to drive over to renogy when im down in LA end of summer thought.
