yep

Yes, or you can have one person on the bottom while the other person lowers the battery down. I personally just crawled under and removed and installed them myself. Not really all that hard. I'm 67 and did not find it all that difficult. I bought the golf cart batteries from Sams Club. I believe they are the GC2 group series. I don't boondock a lot, so I felt these would fit my needs. I have had them about a year now, and no problems so far. If one is going to boondock a lot, I would still think they would work good with solar panels. But, that just my opinion. At only $89.00 a piece, I'm happy. Most people seem to like the Trojun Batteries, but there is a much higher price. I'm sure it all boils down to the amount of amp hours and the amount of draw you think you may need. Good Luck.

Update. Finally got batteries installed and had to replace a 5amp fuse on the BCC and now all is working. Only thing to check out is the water heater and furnace once I fill the propane tank. Thanks again Hawkeye for all your help.

Getting them out from under the MH is the only way I can do it. A major PITA
