So I have pretty new batteries and I don't want to get into brand, but I have good batteries.

My cranking battery has 875CCA, but when I start the big motor, my graph will shut off. This has only started happening since I upgraded to the Helix units about three months ago.

Is the reserve capacity not high enough maybe to be causing this problem, or do I need to bite the bullet and isolate all my accessories onto a battery by themselves?

Thanks

Power wires all the way to the cranking battery. Period.

Correct. As a matter of fact if the installer would read the installation directions he would read exactly that.
Put a 3amp I mine fuse in it.
