Location of 2014 Winnebago Tour House Batteries

I really like the 2014 Winnebago Tour, but the House Batteries are located under the storage slideout tray in the basement floor. You need to slide the tray all the way out and then crawl into the storage area and remove two screws in the floor which opens the battery compartment. This is a real inconvenience for servicing or replacing the house batteries. Has anyone had this battery storage configuration and how did you deal with servicing the batteries?

If they are AGM batteries there is no servicing for many,many years hopefully. If they are not sounds like a bad layout.

I agree as well. Worst case, if they are not AGM's then force the dealer to install AGM's. Then enjoy everything else about the coach for the next 5-10 years till the next battery purchase.

I don't really see the issue with that. They should stay cool there. My American coach has them in their own compartment which will be great for the one time every 5 years I replace the batteries. The rest of the time I would rather have the empty compartment.

I assume they put them there to make use of the dead space with the lower rail design?

Also, according to the winnebago brochure they are AGM.

Every manufacturer has their pros and cons.

Great information. I do believe they are AGMs. I feel more comfortable about where they are located after hearing from you all. Looking forward to the day of our purchase. Thanks.
