I took a look at the BIRD, and of course it makes a lot of sense. I have a new/old stock West Marine battery combiner. I think I will install it to keep the chassis battery charged on shorepower. Thanks for reminding me. Joe

Not true. If the solenoid has two small posts, then one must be grounded and the other one has to recieve 12v to activate the solenoid. You could put diodes on the end of the alternator and aux/start wires and feed them to the same small terminal.
