Last winter I installed a Victron inverter in in my 2018 AF 992.
The final phase of that project was replacing the wet cell batteries with a pair of Battleborns that spent the previous 1.5 years in a small TT I had.

I jettisoned the sliding battery tray, which was a heavy paperweight.
I built a small wood platform to put the batteries on and also mounted the inverter fuse next to the batteries.

Here's more details of the project

Nice clean install, good job. Many of us TCers have gone with lithium batteries, I installed 3- 100Ah Battleborn batteries with 480 watts of solar in my rig.

Thanks!

I still haven't decided if I'm going to do solar or not. I'm leaning towards not doing it because I almost always camp in the shade here in WA.
