Installed alternator cut off a few Questions.

Well I installed an alternator cut off tonight. I want to know will it be safe to run my charger on the 2 amp trickle setting over night when I get home. I want to try running with it shut off as much as possible. I believe this is going to be a great fuel saver it is amazing how much an alternator draws down a lil Metro motor.

I also made a circuit board that monitors voltage and turns on led at 11.8v. I also installed a group 24 deep cycle battery. I just need to know how to Safely charge it now. And does running without alternator then turning on during same trip cause a major drop in FE because of added battery drain?
