Not sure what brand mine will come with but the dealer said he will make sure I have two. I also said I have a brand new deep cycle and he will put in two more battery boxes and I will pick up another one to give me four, this way i will have more than enough power for those couple of days in between camp sites

Dan, you need to make sure all four of those batts are the exact same size, rating and age or they will charge and discharge at different rates. this will destroy them.

Just picked up my RL yesterday. Mine came with a no-name from Redwood, but I had the dealer put in a matched pair of Interstate 12V deep cycles - just for standard coach or solar recharge use. You need (4) 6V deep cycle (Trojan are best) for solar array/inverter use.

I think mine (2) are Interstate deep cycle but I'd have to take a look to be certain.

I'd be checking with your dealer and finding out why you only received 1 battery ;why would they give two batter boxes but only 1 battery...I received my information from Reigional Sales Manager Doug Richards

I'd be watching these posts and make copies to show your dealer for a refund and maybe they can get their money back too
