Gulfstream Vista cruiser mb battery help

I cannot find my previous thread

I have a 2007 Gulf Stream Vista Cruiser MB
Talked with GS and they admit they left off the RV battery which means I only have one and it is the one that the rv uses to start.

Anyone know how I can proceed with adding this only from scratch?
I doubt I can get any help from GS but I am trying

Are you asking how to add a second battery for the Coach ? Is that correct your Coach only has one battery to power the Chassis and the Coach ?

If you are talking about leaving the battery you have as your chassis battery and then adding another to power the house functions, you'll have to determine how intertwined the two systems are. If you find a fuse panel separate from the chassis functions that all the house power, it would be rather simple to use appropriate sized cables to take that from the new battery. You would also have to see how your converter/charger is wired and see if you can add a second battery or install a Tric-L-Start. If using a Tric-L-Start, you would probably wire the house battery directly to the converter/charger and then maintain the chassis battery with the Tric-L-Start.
