Any pictures of multiple battery installs on one of these units will be appreciated.
Sorry for the delayed reply, I just took the batteries off my 2016 26VFKS which a V-nose TT.
How I did 2 batteries on my 26VFKS.
Initially the TT came with just one battery. Since we mostly camp in forest service camp grounds without hook ups, I like dual battery power.
I started with an old aluminum cooking sheet that I cut in half. Filed down the rough edges.
Next I placed the halves on the V-frame to get a rough idea of how I would anchor them. I drilled 2 holes for each side through the cooking sheet and the flat plate on the frame where the original battery was.
I had some old perforated angle stock so I cut it to size so I could anchor those to the side of the frame, and then the cookie sheets and battery boxes to the angle stock. I cut the fronts ends of the angle stock at an angle so it wouldn‘t stick out past the battery boxes. Painted the angle stock black. Then mounted those to the side of the frame using self-tapping screws. And finally just drill holes in the bottom of the battery boxes, screw 2 holes with self-tapping screws and 2 holes (in the angle stock) with a couple of ¼-20 stove bolts.
Everything seems nice a sturdy.
