Well, the wiring is done. I purchased the deep cycle battery today, a Sportsman By Standard Battery Co. 180 AH, 220 Rc $55.95. Also Picked up my battery Charger, from Wally world. Has all kinds of Bells and Whistles. Didgital read out of % of charge, Voltage, and Alternator Charge, Buttons for Reg, Deep Cycle, and Gel Cell.
Buttons for 2 amp,,8 amp, 12 amp.. $39.95. everything hides back in the unit when not in use.
Question??? Do you think it is alright to keep the charger connected to the battery all the time, and are they safe in an enclosed compartment? Any
damaged to electrical connections located in the same compartment.
The battery is currently in a newly purchased plastic battery box.
I'll get some more photos in the next few days.
Take care
Tom

Tom,

Unless your battery charger is voltage regulated and designed for constant use, do not leave it on and connected to the battery all the time, as it will boil all the water out of the battery distroying it. You can, however leave it connected to the battery all the time and that should not hurt anything.

Thank you steve. I have it wired to it's own circut, so I will just throw that breaker when it shows 100% charged.
Take care\
