Yeah, we were surprised too. It was all less expensive and less hassle than aftermarket I don't know why it would not be listed. We should have also asked for better tires since we replaced them soon and in 2016 that's an option.

Mine came with only a singe 12 battery, but with a selector switch. The switch is either on or off. It isn't the type where you can select 1, 2, Both, Off. Since I replaced the single 12 volt battery with two 6 volt batteries I couldn't use a switch with anything but On or Off.

Duel Batteries? Two batteries fighting each other is NEVER a good idea.

It was an option on my 2016 and I checked the box before you could say Rumpelstiltskin.

Tell me about changing batteries older in life it was not easy from the bilge in my 30 foot cruiser

I have a new Pinnacle 36REQS with a generator. Only came with one battery.

The dealer screwed u. You need two to properly power slide and level system. If you look u will see that he hooked both hot leads to one battery. When I get mine back from dealer I am gonna put the batteries in separate boxes now they r just strapped down and slide around some. Remember to start genny or hook shore power up before running slide or leveling. The factory even told me dealer should use two
