Default Dual or larger battery in a PW Excel?

I have searched in numerous spots and asked this question of several dealers and PW.

Has anybody done or seen a dual 6V or a larger 12V installed in the PW Excel van? The existing van has just a size 24.

RT have an expanded battery option but PW does not and no solution from PW.

Anybody investigated this Mod?

Thanks for any help on this.

I haven't been able to find many Pleasure-Way owners mods at all on the web.

You could mount high quality AGM batteries inside the van.

Lifeline probably has the highest standards when it comes to AGMs.
From their website:

Lifeline Advanced AGM is more efficient in the AGM process and
completes its gas recombination near the plates. In fact, they are
the only RV batteries to pass the rigid MILITARY-SPECIFICATION for
non-gassing even during severe overcharge.

I don't mind using Gels or AGMs inside my Roadtrek. Mazda actually used an AGM battery in the trunk on their Miata's.

I have eight 17ah 12v gel batteries in my RT now. 366ah total capacity in my Roadtrek when you add the two 115ah wet cell batteries in the two exterior compartments.

They work great for me even though the idea is a little bit crazy.

Default House batteries

How did you resolve your house battery concerns?
We have just purchased a 2002 PW Excel/Dodge. The single series 24 battery (probably original) is giving problems, so we are considering options of either one series 27, or twin series 24. There are a second set of lighter gauge wires in the battery compartment which the previous owner says can be used to mount a second battery in parallel?
Thanks, Larry
