Re: For sale Factory fold out bed seat and aux battery setup
Aux battery (not really aux, imho, unless it was on a gasser as diesel really likes to have two batteries for cranking) :
These are mounted on the passenger side frame rail below the side cargo door. There is a dedicate wiring harness that ties this battery into the wiring and starting circuits. The battery boxes make a nice mounting for a house battery but as configured from the factory they will pretty much hold only the Group 65 size battery which lacks sufficient amp hour capacity for camping more than a day or so. They can be modified to hold a Group 31 AGM, but that requires cutting the box and modifying the plastic cover.
I used two of these boxes and had them welded together to create a house bank of 210aHrs via two Group 31 AGMs.
