Battery installation

Hi All,
This is my first question post, I know someone will have the answer. We have just sold a trillium 1300 that had been rebuilt and rewired and got back the 1300 that was my spouses previous trailer (it had lots of emotional value).
The one we sold had had a battery added to trailer, in line with the wiring from the truck. The current one has no trailer battery.

Can someone explain the process for wiring a battery into the system? The previous trailer had the harness connector coming off the battery so that it was plugged between the truck and the trailer.

Thanks for any help.

Jamie and Susan

Hi Jamie and Susan,
Welcome to the forum. Here's a link to a Trillium wiring guide located in this site's Document Center, (second from the bottom on the left side menu.) Hope it helps. It shows the battery mounted on the tongue, but I'm sure it can be installed anywhere you can pick up the appropriate + and - leads.

Make sure to mount the battery outside the trailer, deep cycle batteries let off gases that can be hazardous to your health. The tounge is the obvious location because of weight.

Outside... or inside but in a sealed battery box with a vent to the outside.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
