31ul adding house batteries

I canít seem to find any info on this so I apologize if itís been posted before, I canít find it. Has anyone added 2 extra batteries to their precept 31ul? If so, where? Looking to dry camp more often and my residential fridge is preventing that. Hoping adding two more AGM batteries will help a little

You could add 2 batteries in the last compartment on the passenger side which would be beside the existing 2 in the battery bay which would only require short wire runs. I added a marine battery switch so I could isolate the batteries. May want to check and see that the compartment would handle the weight.

Thanks, I don’t think it would handle the weight, the plastic is already sagging in other compartments from heavy items.

I used an air cutoff tool and cut the welds on the current tray. I welded a larger tray that held 4 batteries. There's plenty of room.
