Two bus trays. One on top and one on the bottom.

Bus Tray & Utility Box 7-5/8-Gallon 21-1/2w x 17-1/8d x 7h Gray

use a hole saw to make the vent holes. I used 1/2 a gray plastic barb union to join to the vent hose.

I have 2 24 series batteries in there and am using a foam "noodle" to fill up the spare space. I plan on putting 2 group 27 batteries in when these go to the recyclers.

Any idea where one can get this disconnect? and can you post some pictures of what we may be looking at?

The other way to do it I suppose would be to take a wrench with you, have both batteries charged and when one is almost dead switch cables and start the generator to recharge the one previously used.

Hi Milcop,
This thread provides information on the disconnect and how to install.

Question about adding 2nd battery and switch

There are a few places but Blue Sea brand is primarily marine.

Amazon is a good place to buy these.
