Russell, the batteries you have are L16s, which are built for industrial floor sweepers. The footprint is about the same as a golf cart GC-1, but they are nominally 16 inches tall. A set of 4 would weigh about 500 pounds, versus 250 or so for 4 GC-1s.
They would fit in my Berk 34QS with room to spare, but I'm worried about whether the battery bay is strong enough for the extra weight. I've contacted the Forest River Diesel Division folks to see their opinion and this is the only question I've asked that they haven't answered.
So, I'm interested to hear what kind of coach you have? Does it have the Freightliner XCR chassis? Did your coach come with these batteries installed at the factory?
Have other people installed 4 L16s in their house battery bay with success (or disaster)?
Thanks, in advance, for info.
