    Although we close on our 2017 22GSR this Saturday I am thinking about adding the two battery with switch option.  We currently have the one battery with switch.  Is it worth the $300.00 they are asking for it?  Thanks again for all of your input.

    I think so.  I always want more than one battery on the boat.  Battery  + switch and labor to install it (although not hard) is easily worth $300 to me.

    I have two and really like the security of that.  I can play the stereo all afternoon knowing I have a second battery to get me back to the dock.

    Definitely recommend the second battery!  Or in my case a 3rd and a 4th! If you are handy you can do it yourself, there are a couple of good kits out there. Guess it just depends if you want to save the $100 and do it yourself.

    If your not handy with the tools. 300 dollars is not a bad price. Most of all,look at the time you save with running around.

    We ordered it on ours but it was less than $300 and either way well worth it in my opinion. We love our music and may sit for hours with the stereo going. Around here a good marine battery will run you $75-$100 plus buying the switch and wiring not to mention labor. If I remember correctly there is a single battery option, dual battery with single switch, and dual battery with dual switch option but it may be model specific to. I'll have to look at our build sheet but I think on the Q we just ordered it was less than $200 for the dual battery and single switch.
