According to the brochure, website, order form, mine, and everyone else I know. It is a 100 ah battery... a Group 27.

My dealer used something off the shelf called a QuickBox and it says Group 27 on it, but it holds the Group 31 just like the RT box. It is just in front of the RT box. I am unable to insert photos here.

Mine is a 8A31DT (105 Ah - Group 31). Strange.

One thing about Roadtrek was that they were ever inconsistent. It is one of the things that makes their electrical systems so difficult to troubleshoot and repair. (for those with all the bells and whistles in those systems)

Lucky you... now you just need to get another one in front of it and you are much better set up for a weekend of camping anywhere and easily run the fridge, lights, and charge your electronics.

If you have the underhood generator, you can even run the microwave and AC for awhile. Solar is also a great addition to extend your battery power.

I have a 2018 and love it. I can get through a night easily with the battery. Have a suitcase 120 solar and it does teh job to charging as soon as teh sun comes up. A second battery probably would just make it sweeter.
