Just bought my first rv. 2019 cougar 32bhs, I'm pretty excited. Bought from private seller that has been plugged in and only moved it once to park it where it sits. Now curious if it has a battery and where it actually goes.
Live in Colorado mountian's here we come.

Welcome to the forum.


Behind the propane tanks...usually.


Most rigs, especially ones the size you bought, will have two batteries. Hooked in series to double the storage capability.

Thank you all for your reply. I'm suppose to pick it up sunday. Never pulled a trailer and have to pick it up in the mountian's. I'm a bit nervous about it but will bring help.
Haha bust out the check book I am already doing that it seems and don't even have it yet.

I think series doubles the voltage and parallel doubles the storage, if both batteries are the same.

Yep, right on. Your batteries should be paralleled.
