Battery Tie down systems

Recently purchased a2016 Jayco Eagle Fifth Wheel.After getting unit home I opened front battery/ generator compartment and noticed the front battery sitting at an angle .Battery had slid back and front edge tilted into one of three vent openings in comp. floor, tie down strap was secured to floor approx. 1/2in. from edge of opening.I moved the strap bracket back a few inches ok for now but I am considering buying a dual battery tray with tie down strap and bolting it to the floor.Jayco has 3 rectangular openings in the comp. approx. 6x 9in each.
Anyone had issues similar to this? Or any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'd first call Jayco and see if they left something out of your RV. I'd think batteries should be secured by straps, clamps, etc. If Jayco made a mistake, have them repair it. If they didn't think to tie down the battery, you might then look for what else they left off!

dealer should have secured them... Generally they're added at the dealership.
