Hi there. I've just installed the piranha dual battery monitor but it has a problem. It is only showing a voltage on the aux battery when the batteries are connected via the piranha dbe170, which isn't the voltage of the single battery. The main battery is showing the voltage fine. Any ideas?

I would imagine that the piranha dbe170 connecting the two batteries is an electronic isolator - if that is the case then there will be a voltdrop across the isolator of around half a volt. If it was mechanical isolator like the Redarc it would be virtually nil for most conditions.
