Welcome, also from British Columbia.

You can get battery trays that hold two on the hitch. If you search 6 volts batteries I've see people talking about how two 6 volt batteries do much better then 12 volts. Haven't tried it myself.

How much power are you looking for ?

There is a good place in Langley i got my last trailer(pop up) done at. I can't remember the name but it was the best price around. I will try to find it for you. Or check out camping world in Bellingham for cheaper trailer parts/accessories.

I'm not familiar with that equipment but the best place to start is to find out the current draw or wattage. Once you know how many amps it pulls you can work out the number or size of batteries you need. You can add batteries inside the trailer but it would have to be in a vented location.

The POC takes on ac current 100 to 240 VAC 50 to 60 Hz
On DC it takes 13.5-15.5 VDC ,10 A max
It has a rechargeable Battery Voltage 12.0to 16.8 VDC

I was thinking of getting interstate deep cycle gel batteries

My post to this thread went awry for some reason. I'll try again. If you're going to be doing much off the grid traveling, (on the Island?) you might want to think about one of those little generators that are nearly silent. If this is an occasional thing then I can't speak highly enough of a pair of golf cart batteries. Most marine type deep cycle batteries need to be rated for starting loads and hence are designed differently. Golf cart batteries are designed to put out smaller currents for a very long time while maintaining voltage. Do the calculations and remember to put in about 75% efficiency if there is an inverter in line. If you are uncomfortable doing that, PM me and I'll do some research and figure it out for you.
