    The 2nd battery remaining at 11.51V would indicate that it is not being charged at all (any current going into it should raise it's voltage, even if it's by only 0.01V).
    10.4 volts may not be good...

    I would also strongly recommend you get a steering box brace with a dropped pitman arm (if you don't already have one), the dropped arm increases by a good bit the amount of force transferred...

    Apparently you have different definitions for batteries than the industry as a whole does.

    A majority of the 'marine' batteries sold are actually "Marine/RV" batteries, which are infact designed for deep cycle use (marine batteries not suitable for...

    In general, they go on the device that is emitting the RFI (the USB charger in this case).

    Though it would be nice, I just can't see the likes of Icom or Yaesu getting into the CB market. Such a unit would likely have to come through Uniden, Midland, or Cobra. All three of them have had...

    I don't think those would help. RFI emitted by a switching converter is very wideband, and would be present across all frequencies.
