Twin Batteries

Just a quick comment. It was said that Airstream does not offer twin batteries. That must be incorrect as my 2000 Excella 30' has twin batteries in separate compartments either side of the hitch. I thought that was the normal arrangement. Surely they haven't gone back to a single battery?

Interesting. My Jetta came with a trickle charger, and I was thinking of using it for this purpose. Why use 2? So there is one in the sun all the time, or is one charger inadequate?

Also interesting is what dealers/distributors will remove before selling a vehicle. I remember buying a '96 4X4 F150 with no rear bumper. None of the F150s on the lot had them, and since everybody has different needs for a bumper, we thought it was a cost cutting thing from Ford. Found out later the dealer was removing them and selling them as an aftermarket part. We got a better bumper elsewhere, but still, it is so hard to prove that somone's not being completely honest about what they sell.
