Trying to get ideas on how to beef up the front half of the bed. It is only supported by the front rail and the new divider. Seems to be too little. Looking for ideas on how to run supports from the front rail to the new divider.

Also looking for ideas on a battery switch mount. I found this box and cover that I can mount the switch in. But looking on how to mount it. I could use U'bolts to mount it to the frame. I'm not sure drilling the frame and using machine screws is a great idea. Any suggestions?

I would just use a few small self tapping screws, make the job cleaner looking.

Do you plan on ever adding a second battery? If not, check out my mods link for my battery switch pics. I bought a larger battery box, and mounted a Blue Sea Mini Switch in it. The switch faces the trailer to try to hide it some.

I still haven’t done anything to help support the bed yet. Maybe one of these days. Hard part is I don’t want to loose any storage as we use about every inch of the pass through and under the bed.

Glue and screw a 2x2 frame to the plywood and then install a rail on the wall and the divider you installed to support the 2x2 frame. That would make it plenty strong.

Already has two batteries. Not planning on adding a third.

Interesting. Not sure what is behind the panelling on the front wall, or how thick it is. I like your idea, any ideas about drilling into the front wall?

Didnít look at the pic that close.... The switch is able to be mounted to the side of the battery box. Guess it would be considered surface mounted.

Didnít think you would add a third battery.

Looked over the pictures and I need to check my battery box. I didn't think there would be room to mount the battery switch to it. If so, that would be way cleaner... Unfortunately my TT is in a covered storage 22 mikes away. So I will have to check it later...
