THOR #14340
Battery weight in 2004 Windsport 35d

I changed the coach batteries from two 55 ah 12 volt batteries to four, 6 volt 430 ah batteries. The old batteries combined couldn't weigh much more than about 70 lbs. The new batteries weigh a total of almost 500 lbs.

Should I be concerned about the extra weight I’ve added to that side of the coach? The battery compartment is on the same side as the living room slideout so it just seems like there is a tremendous amount of weight on that one side.

Is this a problem? Or should I find something different to worry about?
