Replacement battery tray

I have a new to me (well 4 months now) 2001 Monaco Executive where, at some point with the previous owner, the house batteries corroded the battery tray. I have it at the REV Factory Service Center in Alvarado, TX getting a few things addressed and one was to replace the battery tray. Got a call that their parts guy said the tray was no longer available in their system.

My question: anyone replaced your battery tray recently and where did you get the parts?

Thanks!

When I need to make one I use the angle iron from an old bed frame, the last one you'll ever need. Yes I have a little redneck me.

Here's an online source for the Kwikee trays:

https://www.delcity.net/store/Kwikee...Trays/p_799440

I purchased the tray ball slides from del city and had my trays powder coated.

https://www.delcity.net/store/Ball-S...99437.h_799514

I then painted the battery compartment with rust encapsulator paint (POR15 is one example)

Then I purchased a Lifeline chassis battery(AGM battery) and the water miser battery caps for the 6V house batteries.

My battery compartment has looked like new since making these changes 5 years ago.

As stated above I would take tray out and take to a metal fabricator. Bet it wouldn't cost $35 to $50 and would be better than a new one!! good luck with your new RV!!!!
