Bailey Phoenix Plus 650 battery box


Recommended Posts

Hi 

 

New to this sort of thing, so forgive me if there's an obvious answer to this question...

 

I'm looking for a leisure battery for my new Bailey Pheonix Plus 650 - but I can't find any information about the dimensions of the battery box, only that it's stored under the floor?

 

Can anyone advise?

 

Thanks in advance for your support.

If you dig on the Bailey web site, you can find a list of suppliers. Find BCA and that takes you more pages. Eventually you will find a list of batteries that fit, as well as box size

As a current Phoenix owner I can advise that the height of the battery is critical as the box is not very deep. I had to buy a new battery to fit as the 6 month old one in my previous van was too tall.

 

The battery box is just 210mm deep :o

 

My current battery is a Yuasa L36=100 

Experience is something you acquire after you have an urgent need for it.

As Mr Plodd says the key issue is the battery height, a few years ago I changed my caravan and faced a similar issue. After some research I purchased a Hankook XV110:

That was four years ago and it’s still going strong, you also need to consider what amp’age you need, assuming you’ll have a mover fitted 110AH is the minimum. The other thing I like about the Hankook is the handle which is useful for lifting in and out of the caravan.

I think my Yuasa is 100Ah, it copes with moving  my 1500kg caravan a fair distance (uphill driveway) in addition to moving into position on site, with no sign of ever “running out”

 

It also has handles, but I have not removed it in the two years of ownership, but do have a roof mounted solar panel (and no tracker to power ;) )

Sorry - 110 is pure overkill unless significant distance/slope on regular basis.  I have 75 Ah and used it for the last 3 years with a TA Vanmaster @2250 kg and now with a wide bodied TA.  No issues whatsoever.
