You would be better off if you separated the the two, 1 battery for the vehicle and the other for the amps, the amp battery should be a sealed or dry type battery, then wire in a continuous duty relay with the key, so when you shut the engine off the amps run on the auxiliary battery only. You may also might need some heavy duty noise supressors due to the fact it is an Asian charging system.
