I had a welder make a box that went across my A frame to hold extra batteries. JUST DONT WELD IT DIRECTLY TO THE A FRAME AS THE HEAT FROM WELDING AFFECTS THE STRENGTH OF THE A FRAME

Check to see if they are 100% Deep Cycle, or standard Marine/RV batteries. True 6V Deep Cycle batteries will provide one with increased AMP capacity and substantially greater discharge/charge cycles.

Also, standard Marine/RV batteries manufactures recommend not to discharge below 50%. Deep Cycle batteries can discharge to 80%, but maintaining a 50% even with a Deep Cycle will increase discharge/charge cycles and life to the battery.
