3rd battery

Does Laika Laserhome have dedicated place to third battery?

The model and year would help an answer?
However it isn't 'normal' to install 3 leisure batteries as 2 are the normal choice.
I assume you are talking about leisure batteries or do you mean a 'second' leisure battery?

Oh, yes. Model is Laserhome 61, year 1991. Third battery in total, I mean the second leisure battery.

Only guessing but I bet there isn't a dedicated space in your vehicle....however I'll do a bit more looking.

Google..... (1991 laika laserhome 61 usato)…... brings up a few for sale in Italy it's worth an email to a couple?

If you have the space and the payload allowance left any amount of leisure batteries can fitted, it's all about the size of the connecting cables, and the relevant fusing.

Far easier is to consider how many watts you are using then work out what you actually use at the same time, and see if you can reduce that to a sensible level, I normally use quite a lot but with 2 x 125ah batteries and a 100 watt panel I'm fine, the key is when buying stuff is to get everything to run off 12v and use the inverter only for essentials.

Yes, that's reasonable thinking. I have lots of space where could be mounted a second leisure battery, but since I know that some campers have a dedicated place for extra battery and somewhere I read that is possible that Laikas Laserhome have some, I tried ....
Now, my leisure battery is 100 Ah. Panel already mounted by former owner is probably not bigger than 100W. Could be better.
