Aluminum Battery Box for the 19RR

December 12th and 62 degrees up here in New England...I'm loving this Global Warming!

The wooden battery box I made was temporary. It started to delaminate after only a few months. I wanted to make one out of diamond plate aluminum to match the splash guard on the front of the trailer. But when I went to my metal supplier I found out that the aluminum I'd need was nearly $200!!

A neighbor of mine stopped by for me to do some welding on his utility trailer. He mounted a diamond plate aluminum truck box in the tongue of the trailer. He says he bought it at a garage sale for $50. I told him if he ever sees another one like it for around that amount to buy it and I'd pay him back. A few days later he shows up at my house with a near perfect truck cross box he found at another garage sale. He wouldn't let me pay him. He said it was payment for all the welding I've done for him over the years. Great neighbor.

Looks nice. Do you have venting in the box?

Yup, vents on both ends. But I'm using AGM sealed batteries so they really are not needed.
