Where Is The Auxiliary - House Battery On A 1985 Winnebago?

by Dave
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

I have a 1985 34' Class A Winnebago Elandan. I have the manual which gives rather ambiguous information on the location of the auxiliary battery and I have hunted through this vehicle but can't find it.

I have checked all exterior side compartments, under the hood, the rear storage/tire area and under every openable compartment inside the RV. Nothing! But, I have a battery switch on the console and metering for two different batteries that both work. Any help out there would be great!

Thanks!

ANSWER: Greetings Dave thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

Well you have looked in a lot of places, but there is one that you have not mentioned checking and that is under the steps leading into your RV.

When you open up the door to enter your RV there is usually 1 or 2 steps. If you pull up on the step you will find that it is a hinged compartment and that is where you will find your Motorhome's house batteries (I hope)

House Batteries
by: RC Pilot 50

I have an 85 Elandon and it took me a while to find them. Open the driver and passenger door,where the built in step is at< there is a vertical access panel covered with carpet and held in place with phillips screws. behind that is a metal cover. the battery is behind this cover on a slide out tray. There will be one on each side. I hope this helps anyone looking for those pesky hiding batteries.

THE BATTERIES ARE DOOR WELLS IN THE DRIVER AND PASSENGER DOOR AREA. YOU NEED TO REMOVE 4 SCREWS ON EACH SIDE TO REMOVE THE PANEL AND THEN SLIDE THE BATTERY TRAYS OUT.
