TT wireing in way of battery boxs

I need to stick two batteries and boxes on the battery tray welded to the tongue behind the propane tanks. The problem is that the main electrical wiring and the propane line are routed over the battery tray. That cuts off almost two inches of length for the battery boxes. Two batteries fit perfectly if the whole tray was available. I checked the dealer lot and all Jay Flight TT's are wired with the same problem. Probably all the other models as well I imagine. There is no slack to move the lines out of the way. I thought about going to GC batteries as they would fit in the tray, length wise, but are too tall and would hit the diamond plate front of the TT. I find it hard to believe that no one is running two 6v or two 12v batteries in the stock configuration of the battery tray. As usual, looking for a solution.

On my TT the battery tray was to close to the front of the TT to allow a 6v battery to fit. I moved the propane tanks as far forward as possible and built a new battery tray on top of the A frame. This allowed me to enclose the 2 6v in a battery box and have much easier access for battery maintenance.

My large wire loom has a couple of retaining loops. They are just secured with self tapping screws. Remove them, move your wiring loom to a different position (top or bottom of the frame) and re-secure.

Get a RV Armor box (aluminum ) so you can lock them.
Great price and not to hard to install
