Dual batt setup

Going with 2 group 27 batteries for longer extended stays with no power. Problem is that they don't fit in the factory tray. Problem solved...built new tray that bolts into factory tray and sits on top of the frame.

Nice!

Ohhhhh that's harsh. Mop Water?, but it's pure rocky mountain spring water. It has to be, it says so on the can.

Actually that's only true for Coors Banquet which is cold filtered and NOT pasteurized, don't ya know. It's such a good idea to Boil your beer, yum yum.

Just saying...

That photo looks very staged. A shameless act of product placement if there ever was one!

Is Rocky Mountain mop water the same as girl beer? Cuz I drink "girl beer" or so I am told.

You going to lock those batteries up? I've had a one battery setup with a popup for 11 years and no problems. But the new trailer coming is going to have 2 so I purchased these...I have no idea why.
