This is the best Turtle layout I have seen. Putting the batteries in the side compartment instead of the rear storage area is a no-brainer.
Lithium batteries in the side compartment could be an issue in cold weather unless the compartment is heated somehow. Charging most lithiums when they are below freezing is not to be done...

Yes that is true. I would have thought that GXV would have wrapped them in a heated blanket the way they do with the grey water tanks. We will have to wait for the owner to chime in on that one.

An interesting aside is that the newest Mastervolt batteries have temp sensors and are self heating if it gets to cold.
