Adding a battery on x18d.

Hey everyone, we do a lot of dry camping and I was wondering how hard it is to add a second battery? I would like the power to be good for a day or so. I have a generator that I use but I would like to use it less to enjoy the outdoors. Thanks

On my 2007 232 EXP, I fabricated a tray to hold 2 batteries. It took the place of the single battery tray.

Another option is to carry a second battery in the truck, fully charged, and use jumper cables to tie it into the first battery for extended times. They both will charge with the generator as well.
