    okay, today i got a wild hair up my ass and got 00g wire, and a deepcycle battery in my trunk, i ran the wire, put a 175amp fuse on it. Then i hooked the charged battery to my power wire, hooked the ground to the car, then when i hooked it to the battery and it sparked a bit, then nothing. Fuse blew. Im not exactly sure what the hell happened, i dont think that just equilizing the 2 batterys voltage owuld have blown the fuse, but thats all ican think of.

    Might sound dumb, but do you have the right polarity?

    might sound dumb, but my 3rd install i did, i hooked it up backwards too. But not in this case, i made sure of that. Sooo...back to the drawing board.
