Pics of toolbox mod

Here are some pics of the toolbox I mounted behind the LP bottles. Had to move the bottles forward about an inch or so for clearance.

It is mounted with u-bolts around the a-frame. Battery wires routed through a grommet in the bottom. The shape of the toolbax allows for clearance for the snap-up brackets.

Hope this helps-I know that a few people were inquiring about this.

Dave

Very nice. i looked at that same box, but didnt think the battery would fit in it. Where did you find the u-bolts?

The battery fits perfectly. I made a hold-down system out of wood so the battery doesn't move around. I still need to install the vent louvers so the fumes can escape-they just haven't gotten here yet. I found the u-bolts at a local hardware store. I couldn't find them at Lowes or Home Depot.

Looks good Dave! Just wondering, have you thought about putting a cover over the positive terminal? It would cause a pretty severe spark if a wrench or something fell across positive and negative. Might fry something in the TT.

Great idea, Bill. I will put some sort of cover over it-just in case.

That turned out pretty professional looking! I wish our model didn't have such a heavy tongue otherwise we could consider doing this also. Good Job!
