If you're planning on adding a (wet) lead-acid battery inside, make sure it's properly vented to the outside. Otherwise, you'll need to replace the batteries with AGM. Avanti's advice on wiring is...

I tow a 2016 Chevy Sonic LTZ automatic transmission 4 down behind my 12C190P (6L, 6 speed) Roadtrek. Fuel mileage drops from 15 mpg to 13. I use a Ready Brake braking system. Easy-peasy!

Onan Voltage Regulator

Can the voltage regulator be replaced on an Onan 2.8KV Spec K generator, while the generator is still mounted in the van? BTW, it's a 2012 Roadtrek 190P. Thanks!

I don't have an Adverturous, but a similar era RT on Chevy. I'll speculate and guess that RT used similar wiring schemes for the house side of the build. My batteries are controlled by an on-off...

I think Booster has it right. 100 AH should be enough for your needs. A single 12V AGM battery can be installed almost anywhere and forgotten about. Don't forget about a fuse block to keep everything...

Most often we use the twin bed setup, but sometimes we take our grandson along, so the full bed is needed.

Based on the values, it appears that both trailers have a GVWR of 3,500 lbs. My guess is that you will be approaching that value, with supplies, batteries, propane, water, toys, etc. You should...

I would start with two, 6 volt AGM, Group GC-2 batteries, wired in series. This would give a bit over 200 amp-hours (AH) with 100 AH usable. Your van is old enough that your converter (battery...

I removed the exterior awning brackets from my 2012 190P. The brackets were riveted on, not screwed. This suggests that the "blocks", if any, would not be wooden. RT also used a black mastic...

This response doesn't address the original question. The supports are mounted on the outside. It doesn't say anything about blocking on the interior.

I've never had an issue charging a computer from my TrippLite. Not all outlets are feed by the inverter. Try a different outlet.

My 12C190P has a similar 12V battery junction near the rear of the van. I stumbled across it when I was looking for a 12V+ wire to run to the trailer hitch plug.
