I was thinking the same thing about AGM batteries.
I don't have a battery mount on the tongue and would have to move propane
rack forward to make room for one. Had a conversation with a trailer builder I have done business with and he said he could move tanks forward and add the battery rack for about $50. It's now on my to-do list.
However moving the propane
rack forward will leave the crank on the top crank jack hitting the propane
tank. Short term I can shorten the handle by an inch or two in order to clear the tank. 13 ft scamp
is lite so I can afford the loss of leverage from a shorter handle.
Long term it's less than $100 to have him switch me to a 2 inch hitch with a side crank jack mounted in the center of the new hitch, that handle won't hit the propane tank at all and cranking up and down would probably be easier than around and around.
