Since I now have (6) new Trojan T105 batteries, I spent some time with the battery dealer on the maintainence issues. He said it's important not to overfill...... here is a diagram on the proper level.

He advised NOT to use a battery filler as it will overfill the Trojans.

I have Trojans and I have this filler and it did overfill and batteries bubbled over when charging.
I thought it was just me, but will not use this canister any more.

How do you suggest we "see" inside these batteries to check the level? Mirrors and a flashlight is all I have come up with.

Battery electrolyte level will raise with state of charge (highest when fully charged) and temperature (can add to the problem since charging can heat up the battery). Best to fill them right after fully charging them and when they're as warm as they're likely to get, otherwise leave some extra room.

How often do you need to add water to the 6volts? Since mine are all new... I can be lazy for a little while.
