Battery placement

Postby Chris C » Wed Jun 21, 2006 9:16 am

Just thought it might be interesting to take a poll and see where everyone places their batteries. Comments as to why you chose that location would be helpful to all.

The tension between what is good enough and what is beyond that creates the space for character to become our work.

mine hangs under the floor, just behind the axle and towards one side. No other reasonable place to put it... it was an afterthought.

That's certainly a unique approach. Would never have thought of that one.

Mine is in a bulkhead between the galley and cabin. They sit right on top the axle.

I didn't want it in the interior because of the gasses and battery acid, put it in the tongue box in it's own compartment.

I put it on the tongue because of the gasses and such, plus it's the same battery that I have to use occasionally on my car hauler and having it on the tongue makes it a lot easier to get it on and off.

My battery is in the tongue box and the fuse panel is under the front of the tear. Easy access for both. :applause:

Al, I never even looked at these posts, so I thought that I would look them over and found out that I could put my 2 cents in. Really doesn't matter, I wouldn't think????? I am always behind in everything anyway. :rofl2: :?
