When I purchased my 2008 37RDQS new, after I got it home I saw it only had one battery. In the battery compartment there was a lard label that stated the 5er needed 4 of the 6v batteries installed. Back to the dealer and he changed them out, no questions or arguments. The batteries hold my fridge (18cf residential) for days without charge, even after 5 years.

You should have a wiring diagram in the battery compartment. It's conveniently located behind the batteries on my unit. LOL

My batteries are wired in series/parallel. It's the best way to go for maximum operational time.
