Not me and I would be careful with that. Normally the battery is in a ventilated space and the pass through storage area is not ventilated.

I just put in 2, 6v batteries in mine. I used a heavy duty plastic tote, cut a hole on top so the vent hose can be attached. Batteries fit good and secure. I am planning on adding an additional 2 more batteries in the next few months to increase our amps and I figured adding another tote next to it should work.

I can get a few pictures next time I am at the trailer if you would like?

Not the greatest pictures but you get the idea. I got the tote from Lowes I believe it is a 14 gallon. I drilled a few holes on the side of it to put the wires through and sealed them afterward with silicone. I cut the vent hole a bit smaller than the hose for a tight fit but for safe measures put silicone around the top and added some gorilla tape just to make sure it wouldn't come off when I moved the lid around.

I was able to use the existing battery cables and shut off switch I just needed 1 cable to connect the batteries together. Total cost was about $20, tote, battery cable and silicone.
