Looking for options or ideas for adding a second battery

I would like to add a second battery to my 1640 2018 ESP while being able to secure/lock both batteries in place. Has anyone come up with a good solution for their tent trailer?

I had a dealer install a locking metal battery box to hold my 2 GC-2 batteries on my A-frame. Actually, all I wanted was a plastic box without a lock, but he ended up sourcing this metal box. It cost him about $230, I believe. He didn't charge me, because I was going to do 2 single plastic battery boxes without locks for about $20 each. I cut holes in the end of the metal box and mounted a marine battery cut-off switch.
