2nd battery location?

I am sure I am over thinking this but,,,,, here we go!

Just bought my first 2013 323qb 5th wheel and the battery is up front and is mounted in a flush (with the floor of the bay,sort of speak) battery box with a vent lid. My question/concern is adding a second battery where it will be safe and secure. The plastic material the floor is made of seems light weight. I would like to just screw a new battery box beside the current location hook it up and go? should I worry about a second vent lid?
Just behind the factory battery is my water pump and waterlines. I have the room just not sure about the weight of a second battery that close to the factory one ( both 12V Craftsmen marine deep cycle ) I am also including a kill switch with this mod as well.

thanks for any advise,

Not familiar with your camper. Could you post a photo of the area in question?

i would think it would be better to ask owners of the same brand of 5th wheel.
not every 5th wheel would be the same, but it would be better to ask other 5th wheel owners.
you might want to ask a similar question in the TT/5th wheel section or the brand sub-forum.

but i don't know which brand yours is.
