Any one know where I could get a large battery box that holds two 12 VDC batteries.
I would like to mount both batteries up front of my trailer in just one box not two.

Many thanks,

Bill B. Michigan)

You could try a good battery outlet, like Ideal, or a marine supply store might be able to order one if they can find it.

You can find battery boxes in the Super Wal-Mart but only to fit one. I doubt that you will find that speciality box made for two. I suggest that you improvise with two of those sold at Wal-Mart and make it as ONE (if you still desire) by banding or bolting the TWO together as ONE. Another suggestion would be to take your needed measurements and apply that to a heavy duty storage box found in hardware stores or other places that sell such items.

I am using two that I bought in Wal-Mart ...I can handle one but two together? Ouch!

Let us know what you come up with.

Rich

I did the same on my last fiver. Bought a plastic storage box w/lid and mounted in front area; then use automotive type hold kits inside box; cut hole in top and run flex hose for vent. Sealed around the hose on top lid. Worked great right up till we traded it for current unit.

Going by the dimensions, the boxes shown are for ONE battery, right?

Rich,

Look at the bottom of the above website at the "Commercial" boxes, some of them are built for two batteries.

I added an extra house battery on my Class C. I bought my battery box from Interstate Batteries when I purchased the new battery.
