Coach Battery revamp

Currently have five lead acid batteries with 65Ahr each for a total of 330Ah. It takes up all the room in the forward storage. I am planning to swap them out with two 6v L16 Trojan lead acids in series to make 12V and 405Ahr. It will take up the footprint of one of the lead acids, but will double the height. Anyone have any thoughts?

Good idea. I was looking at some Powerstar AGM 200ah sealed batteries on eBay...I like the idea of sealed, and at $360 shipping included sounds like a good deal.

I noticed on my wiring diagram an optional inverter. Do you know if the 94 was pre-wired with AC for an inverter up front?
I also only have the 30 amp wiring diagram...did they make one for the 50 amp?

I'll have to check my wiring diagrams when I get back out to the Moho. The powerstar were a nice option but the L16 Trojans were better for longevity, reviews, and reliability. Once you add in the AMP hours it was a done deal.
