Thanks 5picker! This is why I asked, didn't seem like a good idea, just wasn't sure if there was risk or not.

The screws on mine are located in the low areas of the Battery box, so they sit below the battery. The box is not flat on the bottom.

New popup battery concern.

I leave my unit in storage and when I had popup I took batteries with us. Bought bigger TT and installed these. No chance of going anywhere now.

The weather was finally good enough to get out and do some work on the popup. The battery box has now been securely attached to the metal tray with reinforcing plates, Phillips head machine screws and lock nuts. Just drilled the holes and tightened everything up. Before and after pictures are attached. Even got lucky enough to get another screw through the strap. Hope this helps anyone else in the same situation.

All the best,

Nice way to do it. Probably much better than single screw pressure points which are sure to wear right through.
