Lots of ways to do what your wanting, I built my setup with two independent charging systems and a continuous duty contactor that I can control from the cab. Each battery has it's own alternator and is isolated from the rest of the system. I can run one down and leave the main battery fully charged or self jump myself, or tie them together for longer winch pulls.
