Don and klassic,

I have not progressed this far yet. At the moment, the Group 31 battery is on the tongue charged by solar and the Trojans are securely in the garage on a tender.

I bought a cheesy one from Fleet Farm for $8 and I wanted to fabricate one myself but don't have any material instock
Please see my thread here about the box and where I bought it. The box is nice and it is made from a very durable plastic.

And, please see, also, this thread on my installation of solar on my X23B. The solar panel is keeping my battery in the storage lot charged.

I mounted an extra battery on the rear bumper. I bolted a flat micarta board (you could use treated plywood) to the bumper, then I bolted a Walmart battery case to the board. This and the tongue mounted battery are hooked in parallel, each with its own 30A inline automotive type blade fuse. I simply pull the fuse on the battery I don't want in the system, keeping one fully charged in case I deplete one. They are charged by either the onboard charger or a 160W solar panel on the roof.
