I need to be a little more specific. It came with two - one from factory and one from dealer. I did not ask for or pay extra for the 2nd battery.

I know they come from the factory with only one battery.

Per email from Andy during my build, Redwoods only come with one battery. Forum members have been blogging about this"one battery" situation for months - and it was initially blamed on the "landing gear fuse blowing" scenario.
Hearing this, I asked to have a second battery added as an option on the line so they would match. Andyreplyed that adding a second wasn't available from the factory and had to have the dealer add it (this should standard equipment or at leastan available option).If yours came with two, the dealer threw it in as part of the transaction. I wanted my batteries to be an exact match.

I would check to see if the dealer would swap out the factory one for the match of the one they put in.

I will settle for just the one 12 volt batt as I plan on installing 6 volt Trojan's with a solar system.

I am not up to date on the solar systems. Is that something primarily if you do dry camping or is it for all round type camping?

If you do a lot of dry camping. you might look into a solar system and inverter,so you don't have to run you gen all the time. but even if you don't. you might want to install a smaller system to keep your battsfully charged,when not using you unit.

It is a large investment for your average camper I would think.
