My twin house battery set-up.

I had a member PM me about my twin battery set-up on my 20' 1981 Winnebago Warrior.So here goes nothing,I am going to try to post pics of it from my Photobucket account.......

I had batteries on the left side and right side before.One was for the engine and the other was the house.

I added a battery tray behind the rad core support on top of the drivers wheel well and battery for the engine and then added in parallel a second battery for the house where the engine battery was.Both house batteries being deep cell type.

The one thing about a do over is you get to do what you knew in the first place.

I think I'm getting the jist of what you've done! There's a slim possibility I may be able to do something similar. I'm thinking of a setup where I would relocate the chassis battery to a basement storage compartment, and use two house battery's under the hood. The problem with my idea is the storage compartment I would need to use has a short but wide access door.

Thanks for posting the pics!
