2016 Malibu LSV -Hate the Dual Battery Location

Recommended Posts

Setter2016

I have a 2016 LSV 25 and I hate the the dual batteries were placed under the front passenger side seat in the passenger compartment.  Does everyone get stuck with this and does anyone want to share other locations for the dual batteries and the steps to moving the batteries to said other locations?

Thanks.

I suppose you could move them back to the old location in the observer's compartment. OR the older location in the rear locker. For years we had to put up with them in the observer's compartment and almost making that area useless for other storage. I like the new setup. I keep a clear plastic tub in there full of towels among other things I want to keep dry.

First person I've ever heard of complaining about the relocation out of the observer's compartment!  What don't you like about them under the seat?

Thanks for replying.  In our prior boat, we put our boards in the storage under the passenger's side dash and observer seat.  With the dual battery's under the observer's seat, we can't lay the boards flat and fit them there.  Anyone move the batteries to under the seats in the rear corners of the passenger compartment?

I concur that the movement of the batteries is a good thing. I like having the observer's compartment free to store more things.

only thing involved in moving them is cabling and labor. Theres nothing that requires the batteries to be where they are per se, Ive seen a tray fab's across the transom to hold the batteries as well as across the front of the engine bay (not a bu though). to make room.
