New Silverback 31RK Owner with a Battery Question

We purchased a new 2015 Silverback 31RK and have a question... We have a single 12 volt battery, is that normal or should it have either (2) - 12 volt batteries or (4) - 6 volt batteries? Thanks for your help.

Just one (1) 12 volt battery is normal.

Mine came with one but I always have two on board. We dry camp most of the time so we need the extra amps.

Standard is one 12-volt battery, unless you have the Residential Fridge with inverter. Then you need to have (and should have) 4 6-Volt batteries.

Problem Solved

Well just to close out my post... after replacing the inverter (original one was bad) and installing two 12 volt batteries, we are now up and running. Thanks for the replies.

I think 4 6 volt batteries are better than 2 12 volt batteries

One Battery

I have the same coach and one is standard. I will be adding an additional battery simply because we dry camp several times a year. I also have a portable generator for backup.
