is there any use for a deep cycle in a pickup? like to use to run a winch, or welder?
Deep cycle is a good way to go, keep it separate from your primary so you can still start the truck. I have an Optima yellow top wired to my Viair air compressor and will be wired to a winch and other stuff.
Can run it dead and still charge up all the way and run it again...
i pulled one outta my freightliner, and replaced it, i think i may use it in my pos...
I finally switched to a yellow top after killing 3 redtops in my blazer.
It's worked fine as my primary for a few years now.
what size battery is it, if it came out of a Freightliner?
ive got a yellow top, perfect for a truck/wheeler. Not high compression so cca doent need to be high, has like 56 amp hours so camping with lights and a radio going the whole time is doable. Sealed battery so no contamination or leaking, If you dont drive the truck for a month, it will still turn over no problem. Runs my winch no problem even with the truck off. They slow charge exceptionally well. If you daily drive your truck with a high compression motor, then id go with a red top for the cca or ca that are demanded.
1035 marine cranking amps...
pretty good sized battery! make sure you get it isolated and still charges off the alternator.
