    Hey Folks,
    I've had my Santa Fe going into my second summer and love the thing! I have yet to actually camp at a campground with hookups so I'm thinking that's not my thing. I currently have 1 20# tank and (1) Group 27 battery on the tongue. Any issue adding another tank up there beside the first and moving the battery in front of those tanks? Will that prevent issues turning the camper? Could I fit a second battery?
    Just probing to see if anyone has done such a thing and if there any photos to share. Thanks!

    I would think dual batteries would be more beneficial than dual tanks.

    Agreed.
    I'm looking at the space there and I think that I can fit (2) batteries up against the camper and then (2) tanks in front of those. I'm assuming that if I don't go wider than the tongue then I'm not pinching anything.
    This will require some welding, but I think that it can work.

    The only real issue with adding a second tank & battery beside the clearance's is the extra tongue weight on the TV. So as long as you keep everything on the tongue and you TV can handle the added weight go for it.
