I recently purchased a Jayco Eagle that I want to outfit for boondocking over time. One of the first things I want to do is install a large battery box on the front tongue behind the propane tanks. The only battery box I can find will only hold one battery. Does anyone know where I can purchase a battery box that will hold 3 or 4 deep cycle batteries.

Is there room inside the a-frame?


I did not use boxes, because my Outback had a cover over the a-frame. Each battery is strapped to a tray.

HERE is a link to a company that sells boxes to hold multiple batteries. I don't have any personal experience with the company - I found the link on THIS THREAD on irv2 about battery boxes.

Make sure you go with 6 volt batteries. They will last much longer than the 12 volt marine or deep cycle. I use Interstate 2200's and am real happy with them.

I have about 13 inches between my trailer and the propane tank cover. I looked at purchasing a box that would hold 2 batteries from Allied Battery Co. but it was $61.95 plus $18 for shipping. I can get box that holds a single 6 volt battery for $13 from my local RV dealer. What I plan on doing is using several single boxes, instead of a larger double battery box. [img]D:Photo1.jpg[/img]

Yeti, check Wal-Mart for single battery boxes. They may be cheaper than the RV dealer. Glad you found a low-cost solution for fitting multiple batteries.
