Additional batteries

I have a 28Z with the standard Thor battery storage under the entry step. I would like to find another location to add a couple more batteries. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Lead acid batteries must be located where they are vented. This usually means outside the living space of the motorhome. You could use a storage compartment, but make sure it's robust enough to hold the weight of the batteries, and it has a positive airflow to vent off-gassing to outside.

Lithium batteries are a different story. They can be placed just about anywhere INSIDE the motorhome. They can also be installed in any orientation... on their side, etc.

So... type of batteries will make a difference where you plan on installing them.
A positive attitude makes you focus on solutions and success, rather than on setbacks or stress.
