Any of you guys that have one manage to put 4 batteries in it. Curious to see your setups.

I have the Genesis Supreme 40CR. I have two batteries in it. I don't think there would be room for two more in mine.

Not that model, but I have been on the hunt for a battery shelf. Have room to go 4 batteries, but they need to be stacked (2 on top of 2)

Put two batteries behind your propane tanks, I have 4 batteries in my Genesis and that's where the 2nd set is.

Are your propane tanks in a compartment in the front next to the generator compartment? I didn't even think to look in there

Yes, they are in the bay adjacent to the Generator. Genesis offered what was called a "residential package" for a few years that came with (4) 12V AGM batteries pre-installed at the factory. They put the additional (2) batteries behind the propane tanks. Now on any of my Genesis (I've had 3 different Genesis 5th Wheels over the years) I always put (4) batteries in them!

Thanks for the heads up. I'm picking up my trailer tomorrow and was wondering where to put the extra batteries

Just get (2) Lithium Ion batteries instead of (4) Lead Acid 6 Volts. It’s going to cost more up front but your going to have more useable amp hours with the 2 lithium’s and they will last 2X longer than lead. So the cost over the long haul will be about the same!

Any particular brand to look at? And i assume you can tie them together like any other 12V batteries?
