Engine battery location

OK, Dumbest question yet. Where is the engine battery located on a 2004 Newmar Scottsdale 3201 with Workhorse chassis?

If there are 3 batteries under the stair tread, two deep cycle and one normal you found it!


Under hot weather conditions or long drive cycles, the looong cables get hot and the resistance rises! The ground is also weak so it would pay to clean the contacts plus add an extra grounding contact to the house battery.

THANKS, but there are no batteries under my steps.
I have two Coach batteries on a pull-out mid-way back on the passenger side but I cant find the Chassis battery.

Open the front engine access, look down on lower, right side.

I relocated mine from under the step to the engine compartment to shorten the starter cable run and keep it from overheating while it snaked around hot metal. Created a mount such that the bottom of the battery was mounted a little high to keep the water splash down and protected from the same with a barrier. All the cranking problems vanished and the battery life was extended as well.


If you can follow the starter cable it would lead to the engine battery.
In some sprinters the thing is under the drivers feet!
