Battery access on revolution

I have a 2005 Fleetwood Revolution. Looking at the compartment where the batteries are found, it is very difficult to add water, much less even see the tops of the batteries, even with a mirror. I am asking if anyone else has the same compartment, and how you dealt with it. It looks like if I took the two front screws out, I could raise the front, which would greatly help. In fact, the front screws look all buggered up, as some has already done this before. The back of the compartment has never been moved though, as per the spray foam insulation still in place. Anyone have this set-up, and can offer advice about lifting the front for access?

Best money you'll ever spend. Never have to mess with looking into a battery again, and no acid splash out during charging, so you don't have to clean the corrosion off everything either.
