Parallel DC-DC Chargers 30A

Is there an end all be all guide to doing two Orion TR Smart DC to DC 12|12 30 in parallel?


Current setup consists of 1 charger, but when on the phone with Nomadic Cooling they mentioned a few issues with the electrical system. The first one being instead of using the Victron Manual recommended 6 AWG I should be using 1/0.


However I'd like to add another charger into the mix to and curious on best wiring and fusing options.


My first thought of wiring it would be run a single wire from the battery to a 2 stud bus bar and then branch it to each of the chargers. Is this the best idea?

To fuse this I figure a 100 amp fuse on the main cable and then two 60 amp fuses on the split cables?


Please let me know your thoughts.
