Battery box picture?

Battery box picture?

Postby krang469 » Wed Sep 06, 2006 4:01 pm

I have just purchase my 4x8 Tractor Supply trailer and I'm purchasing wood this weekend to start making sawdust. I have my plans drawn out but I have one lingering question. Where do you store the battery. In a seperate box on the front or under the galley in a battery box? Can someone please provide me with a pic of their battery setup? Thanks.

The most common place for a battery is on the tongue, in a battery box. I'm sure there will be lots of pictures forthcoming. Meanwhile, let me see if I can find my setup from my first Benroy.

Here is my 4 x 8 Tractor Supply trailer with a simple battery box mounted to the front. I used a couple of squared U bolts to attach the board.

I am currently working on a larger wooden tongue box for the trailer.

Hello, krang469

Here are some photos from Dave and Kathy's website http://campadk.com/pjsnoozer/ .
These pictures will show plainly where the battery is put in many Teardrop trailers.
These pictures are of their Hunter Shadow Teardrop. Hunter Shadow products are made in Idaho
