second battery location

I have a 2011 Jayflight 28BHS and want to add a 2nd battery.
Anyone do this and how?
Seems I need to rotate 90 degrees on tongue but tanks are in the way!

isn't your current battery in behind your tanks. Mine is in front and there wouldn't be much room for another battery there


would this work

Welcome to JOF

I'm not sure if your A-frame dimensions are the same as my Eagle, but here is my dual battery installation:

this would work...however My battery is of the 29 ( more power storage than batterys shown ) series 13" long without box, xs 2 is 26 inches, existing frame opening is only 25" at front
I was thinking of turning 90 degrees but then I would
have to move tanks and tray up and they would be sitting on u-bolts for stabilizer Don't know if that would be a good idea.

What about going to 2 - 6volt. Better system although it will cost you more

If you put them in their own box could you angle them so they fit?

you could always sell it. As many threads show 2 6's are the way to go.
