Batteries moved into TT - advice please

I had posted this thread on the general TT forum and had no responses so Iíll try here in the hope of finding some relevant experiences in this Boondocking forum.
ď Hi Folks,
My trailer is a 2019 White hawk R27B which has the bed in the front of the TT.

Iíve bought two LiFePo4 and Iím considering installing them in the storage compartment under the bed. There is no maintenance or gassing issues with these batteries so I feel they will be secure from possible theft there as well as free up my battery rails for other storage.

I plan on doing a full solar setup eventually and these batteries are my first step. I want to run the battery leads through the pass through storage so they will be accessible as I plan on installing inverter, cut off switch etc on the inside front wall of the pass through storage. I am particularly nervous about having to drill holes etc in the trailer to run the leads where Iíll need to go.

All that being said, has anyone done this on a similar TT and if so can you pass on any advice or cautionary notes?

Many thanks in advance for your input,
BruceĒ
