Dual 6v in a Redhawk

Anyone make the switch to dual 6v from the single 12v? Would love to see what you did with the box... I'll be going with Lifeline 4ct's, wish I could go bigger but space is limited. I'll be modifying the holder and ditching the slide out battery tray.

Lets see what you got!

We're upgrading from two 12-v group-24 to two 6-v golf cart batteries and an end-to-end battery box with shackle lock on the tongue of the TT.

Did that as well on my toyhauler, the sealed Lifelines lasted 8 years, they were awesome.

Just thought I'd check in after a 5 day desert trip. The new 6v's never got below 3/4 and only turned the generator on twice to nuke some food and DW to dry hair.... VERY PLEASED!
