Option - Aux Battery Prep

I see this as an option on the web site and I have seen a few people here mention it. Yet information about it seems scarce. I have asked the dealer about it and they keep saying they are checking.

Does any one have this option? What exactly does it include?

So the dealer finally gets back to me....

"AUX battery prep is so you can have an extra battery put in for your accessories that you'll be putting in."

Kinda figured that from the name of the option. I had asked for details of what is provided, diagrams, instructions. The response was...

"Google might have some images but I don't see any in the brochure."

Google is good but it can't read the minds of the MOPAR marketers or engineers. If this is a published, available option, why is it so hard to find info about it?

I have placed my order for a 2017 PM for our DIY RV and I ordered this option "just because it might be useful". I could not find any specific data on what it consisted of either. So maybe in 16 weeks or however long it takes to get here on the dealer lot I can share some photos? Later this fall maybe...

Best I found was 20amp switches on the dash didn't say how many and the aux battery placement is in the rear of the van. Battery not included.

You may want to talk to a Winnebago dealer. There is an auxillary battery mount under the van just in front of the left rear tire. Perhaps they can offer some assistance.

Do it yourself, save money, get a better setup. It's not rocket science.

To do it safely you do need to understand how the electricity may flow.

In the end I bought off the lot that did not have that option. I managed to install under the drivers seat.

My PM arrived in November, working on making it a DIY RV now. I have no clue what the battery prep is even now that I have it in my PM. I believe it's just a connector in the wall behind the passenger seat where you can tie in the house battery feed? Not sure if it's connected all the time to the vehicle feed or only when running? It remains a mystery what it is that I paid extra for!?!?
