Lighter side of a 20' fc for extra batteries

Not sure where to post this question, but in researching additions of more batteries for boondocking, I think I could put two GPL-27T's under the rear dinette seat (unscrewing the seat panel) which I think would place them over the axle. The other two GPL-27T's go into the existing batt box. This would minimize the tongue weight or at least keep it down.
I'm guessing the heavier side of the 20'FC would be the curb side, with the door, wardrobe, refer, stove and cabinets.

What do you guys think? Is the street side lighter? Have a recommendation for cable gauge running about 8' to the front?

Thanks and Happy New Year!

Ditto to Steve's welcome to visit the 20-footer thread, but you may also get some good info here from experts with more specific electrical knowledge, regarding the AWG to run that far.

How about under the front dinette seat near the water heater? At least the cable run would be hidden under the bed, and closer to the AS batteries.

Happy New Year!
