While at Quartsite some friends were talking about batteries. They said that when they bought their coach (SOB) they put white distilled vinegar in the batteries and they are 8 years old and have had no problems. Has anyone ever heard of this before? Would the vinegar have any addatives that could help extend the life of a battery?

Never heard of it being used to make a battery last longer. It is acidic so it will function as an electrolyte but I don't think it will preserve the life of a battery. Keeping them charged (equalized periodically), clean, and water levels above the plates will make them last longer than anything.
