Battery tray

In my 2014 390BH-60 my house batteries are fixed in the compartment. Have any of my fellow Berkshire owners upgraded to a slide out tray? If so, what tray system did you use?

I would like to do this too. I think past models had this option.

I believe that they stopped using the slide tray on the 2012 and maybe early 2013 models.

Count me in on the "love to have a slide out battery tray" train. Anyone have any ideas?

Or Rich, you could go here:

Kwikee RV Battery Trays

Looks pretty simple to install - just screw the tray to the floor.

I'm liking this idea.

Has anyone checked if the cables are long enough to reach with the tray extended ?
