Can you override the redarc and start the car from it? I never looked into it, and may do a disconnectable Renology solar setup later just to charge the battery during the day. I am using the ML-ACR and 1/0 AWG wiring but I like that I can manually override it and start the car from the secondary battery without jumpers if necessary.

Yes definitely stick with AGM. There is a low-temperature variant for Lithium batteries that relion makes but I've heard it doesn't really perform as expected by someone who has used it on his 80 series in North East US winters..

Yes, I believe you can run an ACR along with the Red Arc BMS.

Heres mine, C4Fab battery tray, used 8g cable for battery connections.Same size as Brown, Red, Yellow wires as the Redarc uses. Blue Sea 40a Circuit Breakers.
ARB refrigerator wiring harness run along passenger side to rear.
Blue sea 12v receptacle for my fridge. Its January in WI. so fridge is in the house. Dometic CFX50.
AGM Battery I bought from Batteries plus, Only one I could find that has the positive not on fender side. Same as starting battery.
Can swap if necessary.

Awesome. I might still get the battery with reversed positive terminal i.e 34-PC-R1500. If i mount it the opposite way round like yours (terminals to front) I could still use it in the starter battery location in a pinch. Gives me the redundancy I was looking for.

I am actually just finishing up the wiring for my dual battery setup today using the shrockworks kit as well with a 34-pc1500
How did the install go? I have all the components just need the battery. I was thinking about going with the 34R-PC1500 and installing it in reverse with the terminals at the front. Do you think that would work? I really would like the option of moving it to the starter location if I got a catastrophic fail.

It fits, but it is an extremely tight fit. you pretty much even need to shoehorn it a bit just to get it in place properly.

Hey there. Thanks for this post. I'm working on a similar setup but using the Redarc BCDC1225D so I can run solar as well. Question: do you have a provision for connecting to shore power when you have access to it? If so, where do you put that connection in the system?

Thanks either way!

This is a Redarc BCDC1225, The Solar input is the yellow wire. Not using at the moment and have it cable tied. You can see it in the pic. May get a solar panel in the future.
Shore Power? Do you mean 120vac? No. Redarc does not have an input for that.
If you are talking about 120vac, I do carry an extension cord and the 120vac power cord for the fridge and plug directly into the 120vac.
Hope this answers your questions,
