If you are talking about the location of our batteries... the access door is OUTSIDE under the drivers window and seat. There is no bin, no sides, no floor. Looks like a great place for batteries.

My understanding is that if you have sealed maintenance free batteries, they do not off-gas and are therefore okay to have in the cabin area. I will put my regular maintenance batteries (which do off-gas) in the back inside corner of the bus in a sealed cabinet with a vent going to the outside and a fan to help vent the gases especially when charging.

Re: generator location

didnt know they were sealed. I am going with golf cart batteries, 6v joined together, and they have to be vented. Generator is going on the back deck. It will make things alot easier.Save me some money also, getting short on that.

Re: generator location

My intention...eventually, is to relocate the bi-fold door a few windows back, like some have already done. I think that I'll use the space where the steps were to house my genny (when I get one, of course). I think that maybe someone already did that, or did something similar...doubt I'm the first to think of it!
