Hi PCUK, What batteries are you using for these motors?

Hello Peter,
Still at the pre-installation stage but have been temporarily using a 70ah leisure battery for starting.

Does it turn the engines over well? Is that with using the heaters?

If I was doing the installation, I'd fit a minimum of 110ah, maybe even 140ah.

I used to fit a pair of 110's for a single Yanmar 315 install. It'd start fine on just one of them, but I always fit a pair so that there's power for the domestic side.

So, would you suggest 3 x 110's one for each engine and one for the house. With the ability to link the two engine batteries together, for starting if low?

Thanks

Pete
