I want to install a 2nd battery into an X Trail to power a fridge,but looking under the hood there seems nowhere to put one.Possibly one place to put it would be under the front seat.Of course it would be the non spillable type .I was wondering if anyone has done the same and could advise me if it is possible.

ol coot
I have a v6 Rav 4 and an 1991 v6 4 Runner. neither have room under the bonnet for a 2 nd battery. I use a Waeco 36amp power pak in the back of the vehicle. This is charged using an engel 10 amp charger which only charges when the engine is running. As I have a 36 amp hr pak in each vehicle if I am going away for a long period of time I take both batteries and link them together. I have a Waeco 40 fridge, an Evercool 40 and an Engel 40 and have never run out of battery power with any of the fridges. I use a 60watt Piranah solar panel to boost the batteries if we are not driving for a few days.
Hope this helps
Mike

I bought a Sidewinder battery box off Derek Bester. Replaced the plastic cover in the boot of the X-trail with half inch ply so i could anchor it down along with my fridge slide.
