Would you happen to have any pics? Did they put in a tray or anything?

That is perfect! Thank you very much, exactly what I was looking for. Do you dry camp much? We occasionally do and 1 12v battery wont last more than a day.

Yes we do dry camp alot. I had two group 24 kirklands on my old trailer they worked well for the first 2 1/2 years by the end of our fourth season they were done. With this trailer I thought about going to two group 27 but with the v nose I thought I might not the be able to get my propane doors open. Hence I opted for two 6V. At 220 amp hours they are about the same as two group 27. I do carry a Honda as back up.

Ah yes the furnace blower. The biggest drain on a 12v system. We have all been there.

Hi GarryR: I added two batteries to my 3001W by welding up a wider rack. The batteries are #27 and are much larger than the dealer added unit. Check out the Pics. The white PVC stuff is a mount for my Ham antenna. Regards; Frank

Would the bracket hit the TV bumper if turning sharply? I want to do something similiar but that is my concern.
Thanks
