The auxillary battery will power the lights, fridge, fan, power inverter, and mini amp. After tons of research, I went with a 125 amp hour AGM battery I ordered off of amazon. The AGM deep cycle batteries are sealed so they don't require any maintenance, they can be mounted any way, and don't release any harmful gases; worth the extra dollars. These batteries are also heavy, so I wanted to ensure that it was installed safely. Here is what I did:
- Vmaxtanks 125 amp hour AGM Deep Cycle Battery
- Nuts and bolts
I cut a hole in the flooring that would house the battery. The battery is nested about an 1.5" into the floor. I got some help from a guy who does metal work, and made a bracket to bolt the battery down to the frame of the van. This worked out pretty slick, the battery isn't going anywhere.
