Well, isn't that strange? I guess it could be a sealed deep cycle battery, but I can't imagine a dealer going to the expense of putting a sealed AGM or Gel cell battery on a TT.

Was the trailer used? What brand is the battery? Can you put up a pic?

There is such a thing as sealed lead acid battery that is fairly cheap. They use pressure release valves instead of caps. Tell us your battery make and model and we can look it up for you.

Also, you can always find distilled water in the infant section of Walmart type stores.

Since batteries are a dealer installed object, all of our power plants are different and unique as the noses on our faces.

Roy....
The images you posted in your note are really helpful. I have a question about the RV120VAC plug-in meter that you use. Can I plug that into any outlet in the camper and know that the power load is safe or should I test a couple outlets? If I'm understanding you correctly, the meter should register in the green zone, correct? What does it mean (and what should I do) if it registers low or high?

Thank you!
Deni

Hi Rebecca,
Can you give us the information on the little box on the top of the battery? I included a picture of the label that may have additional needed information on it.
Thanks
Don

That certainly looks like a sealed maintenance free battery. If there is any model numbers or any info on the battery can you post it, possible website address? I tried to do a web search but I could not find anything. I am guessing it is a group 27 battery from what I could read on the price tag. Typically dealers install cheap group 24 batteries. This is a good upgrade if you camp off the grid, as it will/should have more storage capacity. Also from the label it looks like it is also used in UPS.

I'm trying to send a photo again. Last one didn't go through. I do not see a website address though.
