You mean the group 24? It came with the single group 24 on the tongue and just figured I'd keep it as a "backup". Didn't cost anything to keep it.

99 heritage

i know this post has been there for a while hopefully still active

This is exactly what i want to do with my heritage do you have the specs you wouldn't mind sharing with me? i already have mine remodeled and now need to do this part of the project. i have the high power inverters just need the wiring diagram for the batteries and there sizes that work the best.

Thanks

The batteries are Deka 9C12s. They're 12V each and 229AH. Golf cart batteries are 6V and in the 225AH range. 2 of the 9C12s are equivalent to 4 golf car batteries. They're 130lbs each and not cheap.
The inverter is Portawattz1000. It's a modified sine wave inverter. Not all that good. I barely used it.
The charger is a Xantrex (company name may have changed) TrueCharge40+
The battery monitor is a Link10.

I don't have a wiring diagram anywhere. But if you're in any way unsure about your ability to work with 120V systems, have someone else do this for you. Also, read your charger and inverter install documentation very carefully with respect to wiring.

I'm actually selling this popup right now. Mice got into it and chewed up spots in the brand new canvas. So I'm selling it on craigslist and getting something else and storing it elsewhere.
