CPAP stand for continuous positive airway pressure. It's a device that allows those with sleep apnea to sleep properly.

Just purchased a 2007 Greyhawk 31SS with only 3300 miles on it. The battery was the original 12 volt and was getting tired. We do sometimes dry camp for a couple of days. I didn't want the noise of running the generator all the time. We are in the final throws of making a mod to the 31SS.
1) Removed the 12 volt RV/Marine Battery and box.
2) Had a 28" wide door installed in place of the battery door.
3) I have built and installed a frame and support for a Kwikee battery box that is on order and should be here next week. (24" X 18")
4) We will install the pullout tray next week and have two six-volt Trojan T-105's installed in series. The tray will handle up to 6 batteries. We'll keep you posted on the progress. The upgrade with two batteries and custom cables will probably wind up costing $800 - $1000 but we'll have something we can use and grow with without giving up other storage in the MH.

Anyone have experience with the Trojan T-105's? Thanks, Larry

I've got two of the Energizer GC2's which are the low cost version of the T-105's. They work great but I would have rather had the Trojans. Cost was the deciding factor for me.

When we bought our 2015 Greyhawk we mentioned to the dealer that there was no way 1 battery would be sufficient as we dry camp 90% of the time and running the generator in pristine country was not the answer. To make the sale the dealer installed a 2nd battery in the storage compartment next to the battery slide compartment. You might go back to the dealer and see if they'll help you out.

CPAP = Continuous Positive Airway Pressure - Helps breathing at night.

We decided against 6v batteries, as we had one fail. You can't just cut one out of the circuit as you can when a 12v battery fails.

We gave up on trying to add a second house batter, as it was very expensive, and labor intensive.

Now I'm looking into a portable solar system that you just unfold and set up next to the RV, and plug in.
