Replacement house battery tray 99 Pace Arrow
I've got a 99 Pace Arrow Vision 36Z. The house batteries are two interstate U2200 UTL 6V wired in series. I don't know if those are what came stock on the rig, because they were replace last fall. Problem is getting them in and out. They are a tight fit in the tray and they are really tall. It was extremely hard to get them out of the tray without touching the terminals to the body. The tray didn't extend very far, so it wasn't much help. Once I finally wrestled them out, and did the maintainence, I checked out the tray. The hold down strap was history, and the tray was rusty but solid. I can clean up the rust and repaint it easily enough, and add a new strap, but considering it took me almost three hours to get them out, do the maintenance, and put them back (and that was in my driveway), I'd rather find a better way to house them. I'd like know if anyone knows of an aftermarket alternative, or if anyone has fabbed something up. Them babies are over 60 pounds each, and the compartment they live in doesn't have a full floor below the tray. Anyone seen anything out there?
