Yes. In the case of my rig they were the largest Lifeline batteries I could squeeze in. No room to spare. I eliminated the original plywood inserts, lined the box with neoprene sheathing, and fabricated a metal platform for the upper battery. The platform is also sheathed in neoprene. You must reconfigure the battery cables also. The rubber sheathing can be found at your big box hardware store.

Not sure that would be the case for the newer AI's. The individual trays look to be designed around the dimensions of the GPL-24T


GPL-6CT
LENGTH IN (MM) - 10.28 (261.1)
WIDTH IN (MM) - 7.06 (179.3)
HEIGHT IN (MM) - 13.02 (330.8)
WEIGHT LB (KG) - 90 (40.8)

GPL-24T
LENGTH IN (MM) - 11.13 (282.7)
WIDTH IN (MM) - 6.6 (167.6)
HEIGHT IN (MM) - 9.25 (234.8)
WEIGHT LB (KG) - 56 (25.5)

When stored, my RV is connected to shore power every other week for the entire week. To keep the chassis battery charged, does the power switch inside need to be on? If so, wouldn't that increase the draw from other misc. stuff?

With shore power there is no need to worry about the power switch. You have plenty of power to handle any misc. stuff.

My Interstate has an upgraded 400 watt solar system. I leave it in my driveway when home and only drive it about once a week. Solar keeps everything fully charged with the power switch ON. Same results if you have it plugged into shore power.
