. I went with golf cart battteries because they are designed for constant discharge. They are mounted in custom boxes that are bolted to the floorboard and vented to the outside of the vehicle in case of accident. I have replaced to alternator with a 250 amp heavy duty unit that is used in Police Cars or other vechicles with lots of added electronics. All of the recepticals have been frame and battery grounded. No more dead batteries for ole Johnny. Will post pictures when finished.
I thought seriously about buying a pair of those 6 Volt golf cart batteries for DC power, but didn't know how long they'd stand up to how I use them.
So the "portable 65 Amp supply" was put together. So far, it's worked out well. (It also keeps my club members that only fly the big gasser models happy
