Question On-Board watering system

Is anyone using the on-board watering system for the 6-volt house batteries. I cant get to mine very easy as my neck is not long enough, and my head is too big to get to the back batteries to check the water. It appears to be a easy solution if it works. Let me know of your knowledge and experience. Rivrduk

Do a search of "Battery Watering Systems". There's a lot of information there.

Get some AGM's and never worry about battery water level again. See my post here.

I have a system on my golf cart that works great. Just drop the pic-up tube into a gal of distilled water and squeeze the bulb a few times. Can get it at any golf cart store.

Pro Fill works great at over 1/4 less then the cost of a gel cell battery.

I have the Pro system on six 6 V battries and it works great. Very little leakage, not zero but acceptable. On my 12 V chassis battery I have problems with leaks where the 3 cell unit seats with battery cap openings. Easy to use and install.

Installed the Pro Fill system for use on our 6-6 volt batteries. Works great. Easy install and VERY easy to use.
