Adding water to coach battery

The coach battery in my 2014 Greyhawk DS has thick cables over the water caps connecting to the battery posts. Is there a method to add water without removing these cables?

I use a squeeze bottle like this one. put the tip in and you do not need to worry about cables.

Make sure to only use distilled water.

Squirt bottles can be purchased at most any sporting goods store such as Big 5, Sports Authority etc.

I like the small diameter, more than 90 degree spout in Jagivens's attached picture. Where can I get one of those?

You can get spouted wash bottles like that at Grainger's.

Grangers, McMaster-Carr are good places to check. I bought mine at the local surplus store.

What kind of mirror set up do you use to be able to look at the water level in the back caps while you are filling?
