    3rd Battery and Isolator

    Wouldn't it Make more since to just run a positive/isolated ground and use the back battery for all your accessories? Then you don't have to drop 400 dollars every time you want new batteries.

    CUCV m1008 volt meter problems

    DogHead, correct me if im wrong but when following diagram for the voltmeter It starts on E-6, flowing that to the relay, then following the lead the relay gets power from references you to pg E-9, here the wire is going right into the glow plug module.

    CUCV m1008 volt meter problems

    So Volt meter still broke? According to the wire schematic it runs through the glow plug module... That could be bad as well.

    So better late then never on this reply right? Thanks for all the critiques! I considered everything everyone said and revamped the model, I analyzed it and it should be able to withstand a 20000 pound load in perfect conditions, so knowing no conditions are perfect ill say it will handle the...
