    Battery Upgrade

    Just completed our battery upgrade from 2 12V 98 AH batteries to 4 6V 230AH batteries.

    Should give us a total of 460AH!

    Parts list:
    4) Duracell Ultra 6V Deep Cycle Golf Cart Battery Number: SLIGC115
    1) Century Plastics: Heavy Duty Battery Box - Holds (4) 6 Volt Golf Cart Batteries
    2) 9" 2/0 AWG Gauge Red + Black Cables
    2) 1' 2/0 AWG Gauge Red + Black Cables

    The batteries fit close in the box and the box fits with room to spare.

    Why did you feel the need to upgrade? Do you boon dock or have solar panels? Just curious.

      We are about to retire and will be on the road more in the near future. Looking to open our options on where to stop for the night.
      A small generator and solar are in our future.....

        Good ideas. We are looking at new units and part of the purchase will be an on board generator. Solar panels are a possibility but we dont plan on alot of boondocking.

          That is a good first step.

              What are the measurements of the box? Does the box have a cover with a vent?

                I used this one:

                https://allbatterysalesandservice.co...tteries-gcq-g/


                It has a top cover, but no vent. A vent would be easy to add.

                DIMENSIONS
                The following dimensions are taken from the OUTSIDE of the battery box
                The polyurethane is 3/16" thick.
                Dimensions With Lid On:
                • LENGTH: 22 3/8"
                • WIDTH: 15 1/2"
                • HEIGHT: 12 7/8"
                • Dimensions of Base Only:
                • LENGTH: 21 9/16"
                • WIDTH: 14 7/8"
                • HEIGHT: 12 1/2"
