Wow, I like the looks of that box (with the two batteries and propane tank), but, don't batteries get hot? Should they be contained so tightly with the propane tank? Marg

How did you secure the box to your frame?

The batteries do not get any hotter than they would in a battery box sitting on your tongue.
I installed 6 vents along side,back and bottom so it is cooler than sitting in the conventional battery box. No heat issues.
The box is attached with a "U" bolt which runs on each side of the frame up into the box and bolted. I installed a thin piece of plywood to give the bolt some area to "bite" other than the plastic box bottom. I think they were 4" bolts because the frame is 3"
