Location of Batteries

Hi there, our new 15A is coming in late August. We ordered the solar panels along with the twin 6 volt batteries, as well as the front tool box. It is my understanding the batteries are normally placed on the rear bumper. I would like to see them out of sight in the front tool box. Any input from you experts would be appreciated regarding this.

Re: Location of Batteries

Why don't you tell Reace where you want the batteries. The 2 six volt batteries add some weight to the front end. If you are towing with something small it might put to much weight up front. Ask first!

Good advice!
