    After mounting the new battery boxes I started to wonder if thete is an ABYC code related to ventilation or proximity to my fuel filters/rubber lines. The batteries are attached to a three bank charger and a two bank solar system. I will shift 280lbs forward and more inline with the centerline. I intend to repower with heavier verados at some point in the future.

    Any facts preventing me from doing this?? Thanks in advance.

    Probably see the ABYC code for facts.
    What you'll get here is mostly opinion, few facts...
    Common sense should rule however.
