Question Battery watering system

I'm considering getting the Flow Rite RV Edition watering system for my Denali trailer. Does anyone know if it works fine with 2- 6 volt batteries in separate battery boxes? I don't have enough room for a dual battery box.

If you look at it on Camping World site, they offer a system for 2 6 volt batteries.

It appears from the install instructions you can supply up to six batteries so that means connections can be added for more than the standard two battereis. That would tell me that you could add a longer hose, probably a neoprene hose to reach the other battery.

The longer hose shouldn't be longer than a hose that would serve six batteries. If your batteries aren't further apart than the distance of the six batteries you should be ok. A call to Flow Rite could provide you with the answer I would think.

His problem isn't having two batteries it's a problem of not having them side by side. He has to overcome the distance between his batteries.

Yes....I was wondering if the watering system would work well when using 2 battery boxes side by side. The only info I had found about multiple batteries didn't include anything about from box to box. I imagine it would work out fine and I appreciate the help.

Well, yes, I see that it is in two boxes, however, a quick perusal of the installation instruction for the 2 six volt battery system shows that the connecting hose for between the batteries is 5 feet long and you trim it to fit.
