Thumbs up battery tray under entry steps.

my fiberglass battery box was cracked to the point that batteries could have fallen onto road. took rv to a dealer & they bolted and welded a box underneath fiberglass one. they did a super nice job on this and I won't have to worry about them falling out any more. someone had a post about this not to long ago----everyone should check their battery box for cracks often, it's only thin fiberglass.

My '99 National batt box is fiberglass. It's very thick and not a crack amywhere.

I have T-105s in there with plenty of clearance. If it were ever to crack, I would just re-enforce with more fiberglass.
