NICE JOB!!!

The only suggestion that I would make is go to Home Depot and get a piece of metal strip the width of that recessed slot where the bolts are, cut it to the proper length, drill out your 2 mounting holes and bolt it in. This will make the mounting a lot stronger.

Better to be safe than sorry.


Looks GREAT

Thanks Sebring. As a former fabricator mounting that will be ez for me - you should see my deluxe sewer hose compartment! lol I even put some "windows" for a visual check on the hose because you know SQUIRREL.

Whats the advantage to 2 x 6v Im assuming Amperage and longevity?

That's a really clean installation! I see you must have a NOCO battery charger, those are excellent for maintaining and charging batteries. I have one for my J185 batteries.

Nice Job!!!!

I would still recommend putting a piece of metal across the bottom of the plastic case and drill out two bolt holes. I would hate to see you lose those batteries when going over some of those nasty bumps/holes. The side-way weight shifts will be an issue, with the case extending over the ends of the battery frame area. You are you are probably playing with about 140 pounds of weight and the plastic case bottom is no match for that. Keep checking the case for any cracks that may form from the bolt holes.

$$$

Looks GREAT!!!

Just my thoughts
