BTW, two 6 volt golf cart batteries wired together to produce 12 volts have more reserve capacity than two 12 volt batteries.
We love our 28 BHBE, just make sure you have enough truck. We did by the numbers, but in reality my GMC 1500 with 5.3L and tow package just didn't have the fortitude to do it the way I think it should be done. We were just in under the GVWR of the truck (or over sometimes) and I got really tired of always worrying about weight.
Now my Ram 2500 with 6.4L Hemi slings it around without any trouble at all! DW is relieved to hear me say "sure, we can take that" no matter how much it weighs!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the shower!
