I asked for my Verado starting to be on itís own battery, and everything else on the 5th battery installed. I asked for a 2nd battery charger to be dedicated to that 5th battery. They made a case for why with the new 15 EFI I donít have to be as concerned like previous versions of kickers.
The way Ranger rigs the 2019 and above you can run the starting battery dead and itís much easier to jump off the trolling batteries than ever before, so I think they get a little lax because you have a safety net that requires a twist of the knob.
well some people donít know what questions to ask or what they want and most dealers do a lot of rigging to boats after they arrive to increase price and profit. Skill is missing in a lot of industries. Some mechanics these days have no clue how to troubleshoot they just replace stuff till it works like the guy that fixed my furnace. as consumers we over trust people sometimes just because they have a sign on the door or a business card.
