Batteries for residential fridge

Does anyone know if Jayco provides an allotment of money to the selling dealer to supply batteries. I asked how many batteries came in a Northpoint with the residential fridge and most people said two, one said four.

My 2019 Northpoint 377 was just delivered last night. I was told by my salesmen that only one battery would be provided. It's dealership policy dictated by the owner himself.

I stopped by the dealer to take a quick look and there are pre-made battery cables provided by Jayco that were under the bed with the rest of the misc. stuff. There were enough cables to hookup four batteries.

I wonder if Jayco gives the dealer money to supply batteries and the dealer is just pocketing it.

Look at the MSRP sheet, may be on there. My 15 PINNACLE came with 2 as designed. I think others here have gotten 4 with the newer units.

My new 2018 Eagle came with two. One battery isn't going to supply power to your residential fridge for very long.

Yeah, I know. I have 4 six volts from my old trailer I am putting in. It just seems to me that if Jayco is supplying the cables to hook four batteries up, that's what they intended. I don't know how the cost of the batteries are figured into the deal.

We don't have a residential fridge, but ours came with 3 batteries. Go figure.

Our 2016 Pinnacle has the wires for 4 and I have the residential fridge, I only got 1 battery. The sales guy said normally they don't give any batteries? Do they leave the plant with them installed? If not, how do the transporters depend on the break away working with no batteries?

I'm guessing transporters carry a battery and switch from unit to unit. I do know the dealer is responsible for the batteries.
