    I hear you. That is why I use an illuminated DC switch on the dash. So I can easily see when it is switched on.

    In fact, I normally leave it on (batteries connected) when I stop in camp to run the fridge off both batteries for a while, if I do not connect to solar, immediately. This is in order to use the starter battery a while to help the auxiliary battery before I use only the auxiliary battery for the night.

    I also use a normal starter battery as an auxiliary battery. I just monitor the batteries SOC, closely though. Also this system works for me currently and I have not experienced any starting problems in the morning. Cheap and basic.
