I just bought a 2003 and found a 2nd factory located battery mounted on the frame rail. It is dead and I'm wondering what it powers. This van has a recreation conversion with many nonworking light strips, TV and the dash stereo doesn't work. I suspect it powers these as a stand alone power source and is charged by the motors alternator.

I guess I'll need to replace it and see what powers up. Previous owner was an old lady who's husband passed a few years earlier. Van had little use in the last 5 years. She said he was an avid enthusiast but kept no records. As it is now it looks like she ran it into the ground and it need TLC.

Probably powers the auxiliaries , good to have working . Without the service records , just have to start your own maintenance / service from scratch . After lack of use for 5 yrs , just take your time and work your way through it in checking and doing what's needed to bring it up to scratch
