Battery Placement Retrofit
We are in the middle of restoring our 72 23' Safari and I would like to increase the battery capacity and at the same time, move where the battery is stored.
What I would like to do is replace the battery with a pair of AGM batteries and place them up front under the dinette area. I would put them in the plastic battery boxes and put the charging system up front also.
Is this a reasonable thing to do? I know I am allowed to have AGM batteries in the house and the Lifeline batteries are pretty good at not spewing hydrogen. What about in the RV? How many rules am I violating by doing this?
Should I add a vent to the outside? Are the plastic battery boxes adequate or should I plan on something in addition to them? Are there other places to put the batteries that would be more appropriate?
