Apex 189FBS Battery upgrade

The original battery sits on the front frame behind the propane tank. The battery and the case measures 16", and the frame it sits on measures 28". I would like to add a second battery. Problem is there is not enough room for two batteries and cases to fit inside frame. The frame sits lower than the towing A frame. Can't be mounted on a new frame on top of the A frame because there isn't enough height clearance. Front of the TT is rounded and the propane housing make a narrow space.

Anyone have any suggestions or have had a similar experience?

Same situation on my trailer. I plan on replacing with a larger marine battery. They make a larger case for it and it will fit space. I worry about powering my cpap when we lose shore power and the larger battery will give me 8 hours and still power lights.
