    I understand some of you have moved the battery to the storage box.  Doesn’t that drastically  change the tongue weight?

    I put my battery in the tongue box but I went with lithium ion because it is so much lighter. It’s definitely more expensive but it was a simple all in one unit so I didn’t have to worry about chargers or inverters.

    There are some posts about mounting the box under the rear of the camper in a battery box. That might be the best compromise for a lead battery because it takes the weight off the tongue but doesn’t put the weight on the galley floor.

    mpilone,

    Under the galley.  That is worth looking into.

    Alternative simple electrical system

    This is the write-up I did on my electrical system using a lithium ion battery if it helps:
