torklift battery box

Hello everyone. I have a 2019 Classic and am wanting to swith from the agm batteries that came with the trailer to Battleborn LiPo4 batteries. Has anyone removed the standard battery box and replaced with a larger torklift battery box on the A frame. Wanting to get 4 batteries in there. Seems weight on the tongue will not be all that different.

Thanks in advance

I think most folks bring them into the coach when switching to Li batteries, typically under whatever seating is at the front. They don’t have the same venting needs and need to be kept warmer I believe. Also, move some of the weight away from the tongue to a degree.

Below is a link to an earlier post that covers this with some detail for under the front couch. There are many threads that address this though.
