Re: GC-12 volt outlet in rear quarter panel

I think the diesels are a lot less forgiving of a low battery than the gas engines. Since then I've installed a second battery hooked up to a Blue Sea Systems LVD (low voltage disconnect) that powers a dedicated 12V outlet installed in the rear compartment on the driver's side. That did the trick.
Where did you place the 2nd battery? Is it a permanent install or just on occasion? Do you have any pics of your installation?
