Adding additional batteries to Challenger 37gt 2014.5

Hello,

I am wanting to add additional batteries to my Thor Challenger 37GT 2014.5 and wanted to know about the additional weight it would add. My end goal is to add solar panels to the roof and want to add the additional batteries to the storage compartment next to the battery compartment. I have figured out how I'm going to seal that part of the storage bin for venting but I'm not sure about adding the additional weight to the bin. In that bin there is room for a total of 6 batteries although I am only adding two Trojan t105's at this time.

I did make a slide out battery tray for servicing so they will be secure. I'm just not sure how much weight that compartment can hold with out reenforcing it, and the best way of reenforcing it.

Also was the 2014.5 year model prewired for solar?

Thanks
Don
