That seems more like what I was trying to explain to my husband that we should do wth our batteries because we can't plug in as well.
Thats exactly where I was with the cover, looked around here and people had fair points on why to keep it, so I decided to make the opening.
Two batteries, but I am running a pair of 6V batteries. You could just as easily run a pair of 12Vs, we had to replace the factory battery anyways, it was junk for a RV IMO, I couldn't even get 1 night of it running the heater (no lights) on the way from purchase to home.
Battery disconnect switch. This is basically what I purchased. https://www.amazon.com/Marinco-701-B...battery+switch
Also purchased an additional power cable and a metal bracket. I will try to take more pics (better lighting), but simply inserted the switch inline with the negative from the camper, then cable from the switch to the battery. switch has 4 bolts through it and the bracket, and 2 of those bolts also go through the L brackets that the batteries sit on. So far works great, the first trip we took it out after installing, we had ZERO issues dry camping over 3 days (and we didn't really put it on shore power before we headed out). Hoping to get the camper in the next couple of days to prep for next week and will try to get additional images.
