I am trying to attach a battery isolator to the positive battery terminal, but have side terminals, no posts. Our vehicle has the aux battery stud on the opposite side of the engine compartment, on the under-hood fuse panel, as you described yours. Is it safe to connect our positive cable (via ring terminal) to this tap? Should we get post extenders for the battery terminal instead?
