Rebuild of a C

I'm finishing up a rebuild of the overhang (bed)can I replace the lauan with 1/4 or 3/8 plywood for the upper inside surface ? to make it stronger .Also with only one house battery for the campers power what is my best bet as I need a new one.

Since you are l imited to one battery, I would get the largest Marine Deep-Cycle battery (12 volt) that you can fit into the compartment.

The fix is all most complete Rained all week and still dry just need to cover it up and a coat of varnish to be done. Ants had removed most of the blue foam and left the upper deck weak. Blue foam powder was everywhere but the ants are gone. removed the fiberglass insulation and replaced it with "Great Stuff" foam and then cut it flush with a hand saw after it dried. The "rectangles" are foam panel and wood inserts and removable if it ever leaks again with out rebuilding the whole thing.
