I brought the trailer in thinking it was a bad battery but the service guy made the mistake of telling me that the battery is too small for the trailer. Well imagine that! Had them install a dual battery tray and put in a couple of 6V Trojans. Now I can camp for days anot have to worry about power.
I agree, a dual battery tray should be standard equipment on these. I am sitting in my TV now at Assateague Island charging the trailer battery. My generator broke down yesterday and today the battery was all but dead. So here i sit on a sunny day charging a woefully inadequate battery.
I also got a similar response from the dealer when I inquired about a dual battery tray they asked, "why would you want 2 batteries?" LOL, go figure.
