Recommended Battery

I am repowering from a 1988 225 Evinrude gas guzzler to a new 2012 200HO.  What is the recomended Starting battery sixe (MCA)?  With dual batteries I am running a starting battery as #1 and a deep cycle as #2.  Will the new motor charge both when the selecter switch is on All?  Recomendations as to the best combination for dual battery setup with the new engine?

Re: Recommended Battery

Battery recommendation is 675 CCA (845 MCA),or 800 CCA (1000 MCA) if operating in temps below 32°F (0°C).

 

There are several methods available to charge two batteries. I recommend the auxiliary charging kit, P/N 5006253. Download the pdf file for the Installation Guide (click the link below) and review page 18, for recommended battery set ups.

Hope this helps,
