    Any idea if the Tazer JL programmer can be used to bypass the battery charging sensor?

    This is not a current option. I also don’t think it would be a good idea as it might trigger an actual problem and some Christmas tree action.

    Wish a person from Genesis would be on the forum to answer some of our questions on charging. I’m close to pulling the trigger on this because I’m running quite a few accessories on my batt ( Fridge, compressor, audio amp, lights, soon a will winch) and I can’t afford to be left stranded due ti inadequate battery charging. Yes I know all these accessories wont be on at same time but stil.

    Call them. They are a great company. After installing the last one I love them. We’ve had no issues with them not charging correctly, acts just like stock to me

    I sent them an email way back when I was seeing the issue in the particular case but I never received a reply. Calling is probably your best bet. I guess it all depends on how you tend to use the 2nd battery and your charging/driving characteristics. Just buy and install it, if you find your 2nd battery not charging sufficiently in your usage you can always disconnect the IBS sensor so that both batteries charge all the time.

    They really need to have the IBS on the main battery. If you're that close, contact them and volunteer to work with them on that setup.

    So here is what I would like to do with the dual battery system. I want to use it just to replace the OEM aux battery with a better battery and into a location that is easily accessible:
    batteries.jpg

    The JL already handles combining and charging of the batteries so I don't need the genesis relay and electronics. I do lose the ability to disconnect those two batteries when the engine is off. This would be important if I had a fridge I was running but I don't have anything like that. I would then add a battery combiner switch between the two positive battery terminals for use in an emergency if the main battery failed.

    Any thoughts on this?

    I was looking at running one of these as a winch disconnect. They seem to be the only quality high amperage affordable disconnect switch available. I also liked that they are marine-grade.

    Those engine bays are so clean... I just finished my install. Laying out plans for the G screen now to get it through the firewall any suggestions?

    Should I be worried about a burning rubber smell after install? I checked my lines and they seem to be fine. No melting wires here...

    Has anyone been in contact with Genesis Offroad? I tried looking them up on their website, but says that their website is no longer active. Thanks.
