Trevor... I want to run 2 6 volt golf cart batteries in series or 2 12 volt in parallel. Should have been more clear.
The battery compartment is vented and I'm thinking of removing the plastic battery box and maybe building a box from plywood to fit 2 batteries and employing the existing vents if I cannot just install a second battery and not vent it...
The supplied battery box is way larger then the supplied battery but no where big enough for 2 batteries.
I'm going to call Brian Hayward at Palomino tomorrow. I got a recall notice (of all things) in the mail this morning concerning my SS1500.
My main impetus for 2 batteries is I run a Xantrex Pro-Sine inverter to power my CPAP machine, and while the one battery runs it all night, I cannot run the humidifier all night as well. Just not enough amp hours in one battery available.
I can run the inverter genny all night but I don't want to. I like it quiet.
The other modification I'm going to do is add knee wall access doors so I can access the space between the camper and the truck bed for storage. Brian has already provided me with doors and sheared to size exterior sheathing to match the underside of the camper (black pebble grain sheet) so everything looks factory.
The camper is inside my heated shop so working on it in the winter is a non issue. I don't even winterize it. The shop never gets below 50.
I didn't realize it lacked knee wall doors when I purchased it. My old Lance had them and I used them all the time. Lots of 'dead' space between the camper and the truck bed for storage....
