Our trailer only had one group 24 battery and since we dry camp a lot here in the mountains we needed more capacity to work with our solar setup. I cut some angle iron and welded it to the frame. Then bolted a 32"X13"x13" box to it. The 4x4 wood blocks is just support in the center. I purchased four 6 volt G2C 230 AH batteries for $110 each giving us a total capacity of 460 AH. I'm waiting on my 2 AWG cables and then it's complete.

Factory setup


Angle iron installed


Almost finished


Finished

On a similar project I glued some non-conductive material to the inside of the lid......just in case. I used a rubber door mat cut to fit.
Nice job!!

Take the batteries out and give the inside a few coats of paint or spray on bed liner.

Drill some drain holes then place 2 pointed up angle aluminum strip to provide battery support and allow good drainage so you can rinse batteries off and have residue drain off.

Box also could get quite warm but it looks like it could be shaded.

Look into adding a computer fan and a thermostat to run it to provide air exchange if it gets hot.

Heat not good for batteries but you may not need to worry if staying in cooler areas.

Looks like great work by the way!

What about tongue weight?

Most places will be over 8,000 feet. Have to stay cool enough when not using the AC.

My tongue weight was 600 lbs but I expect it to be at 800 lbs now. Still safe enough for my hitch setup.
