Inverter and additional batteries for 378

Wondering if anyone has added additional battery capacity and an inverter to their 378? If someone has could you post pictures? I want to be able to use battery power when dry camping to run sat dish and TV and would like to have additional battery capacity as currently I'm doing well for the residential refrigerator to run more than 8 to 10 hours on battery before that dedicated inverter shuts down due to low battery power. Wondering if there is enough room under steps where current batteries are to have a larger battery tray fabricated and locate additional 12 volt or 4 six volt golf cart batteries there or if I'd have to loose the storage compartment to left of steps? My thought for inverter is to add one with a automatic transfer switch with say 2000 to 2500 watt capacity to the circuit (15 amp) that powers the non gfi receptacles. This circuit powers the outlet in overhead sat dish controller / cable box compartment. Along with outlet on right side of fireplace. Maybe others.
