I have a 2002 Rockwood Freedom 2280. I've been planning to fix the battery location this spring when I pull the camper out. Right now, the battery is on the passenger side of the tongue and it's weird. The cables are too short, and they cross over the winch cable. That, and the way it's attached (Couple of metal screws that went in at an angle) seems like it was an after thought. While looking for pictures for another project, I ran across this. The battery is on the winch. Weird. Then I look at more pictures (Different campers). Mine's the only I see with the battery on the passenger side. They are either drivers side, and now I've seen these two with them on the Winch? Is this normal? Can it support the weight? what's it attach to? (IE metal bracket under the shroud?). If I could put the battery there, I could finally move up to a group 27. (Too tight with the propane tank where it is currently mounted. Of course, My camper is buried in the way back of my yard, it's 15 degrees out, and it's snowing, so I can't go inspect mine. Anyone have experience with this mounting location?
