Windsport 35M--add house batteries

We're the proud new owners of a 2021 THOR Windsport 35M. The data sheet indicates there is a battery tray capable of holding four batteries. The battery is located on the driver's side in the 1st or 2nd basement compartment.



In the compartment are two batteries and the hydraulic control valve for the Lippert Level Up jack system. There appears to be a slot for a third battery, but where the fourth battery would go is where the hydraulic control valve is.


Has anyone else with a Windsport 35M encountered this issue and, if so, how did you solve it?


Thanks in advance!


Kelly

Assuming you have 2 6v's and want 4 ? If yes I would drive my RV to the local battery place and show them the space and see what they suggest. If you have no possible physical way to get 4 batteries in there, you might consider a pair of L16's. Same footprint but taller. Sometimes an 8d can fit but they are heavy and in a word, huge.
My local battery store is like roll up and buy batteries and they do all the work. I am down with that.

L-16

L-16 batteries are great batteries but they can be finicky…if you dry camp a lot then it could be o.k. but they rely on being fully cycled to work properly…if not they will fail. Been there…
