I am almost to the point of putting my floor down and am trying to decide on where to put my battery. My options..... 1. place it in a battery box on the toung and put all my electral inside the cabin like the benroy plans show, Run a 8gua power all the way to the back. 2. Buy a toung box and place all my electrical in there including my battery. 3. Place my battery in the gally in the lower compartments.

Bill, any of those ideas would work but you need to consider your weight distribution. I just relocated my battery from the tongue to free up excess tongue weight and to add a second battery. I put them just behind the axle. These are very nice battery trays for a 7" x 10" battery. Danny

Man that is a nice batt tray. However for me i doubt it will work cause my trailer is so low to the ground. I am thinking that the battery will offste the weight of the A/C. just a thought Bill

You would need to allow 10" below your floor for these battery trays. This measurement is for a Costco group 24 deep cycle marine battery. If you insert your battery through the floor with a lid then you could deduct that from the 10". Danny

Here is a thread that addresses battery location. It may be of help.

I built the Generic Benroy and I put my battery in the rear cabinet.

The battery is in a box on the left and the converter is the black box you see on the right.
