Will some one tell me who the manufacture of the gravity fill system is. I don't think the one they sell at Camping world is the same one, maybe you have some literature that would give us a web site.

Thanks,

Lana

Lana and John....If your talking about the fill system with bulb and tubing that goes to distilled water bottle I got ours at Trojan Battery store. Here is name and number of contact person at the Fontana, Ca store. Mike Peters, 909-823-9865. We have had our system since Pomona, FMCA Rally and it works great.

We want the one with a bulb. Is it the same one they are putting on the new Alpines. We were told they sell them at WRV but they are marked up in price and we could by them some where else cheaper.

Thanks for the phone number too.

I think there may be 3 systems at issue:

-the "bulb" is a manual pump system, maybe 2 different makers, available at CW

-I understand the $300 WRV system to be an electric pump system with reservoir, that's manually activated with a switch.

-I haven't seen a gravity fill system, which if available might be more fully automatic


I bought the bulb pump system and I'm happy with it. Pretty easy to install amd the hose can be routed around the box (to eliminate box removal for filling)

CW had them on sale recently. (Good thing since each kit only serves 2 batteries and the bulb is extra)

We took the factory tour in early August. The same watering plugs by BSF (Battery Filling System) are used but the method of delivering the water has changed. The water reservoir is mounted higher and does not have an electric pump. A manual water valve is mounted on the wall where the electric pump switch was.

Oh we're enjoying a few weeks here at Buckhorn Lake Resort in Kerrville TX. The weather is just starting to cool off - yay!
