Battery 26BH

I was thinking of getting 2 batteries for my 2013 26BH and wondering if the current holder accommodates it. Do you have to do modifications?
Is 6V worth the extra money?

Very easy to add a second battery to the existing tray. I added a 300 amp selector switch to mine.

Thanks for the photo. That helps a lot.
I am wondering why you would need the 300 amp switch?
Is that a 12v system or 6V?

I wanted to be able to select either/or battery as well as both and off. The switch is marine grade and was cheap(er) at about $55. The batteries are both 12V. If and when I need to replace them I may go 6V but we don't dry camp hardly at all. We reserve sites in January so we get to pick mostly electric sites.
