Flow-Rite Battery Watering System

Does anyone have this system (www.flow-rite.com) installed on their coach? It looks like a good idea but I'm somewhat curious as to what actual users say.

I have the quick-fill system on my and I love it. Takes probably less than a minute to top off six batteries! Be aware you will need to buy the filler bulb separately now.

I installed on mine. The way it was set up it was very difficult to check the levels without taking the batteries out. This took care of that problem nicely.

Possibly a different brand, but whatever it is, it's the right type of product to use, and mine works fine. Highly recommended.

On the PA one pair of batteries inaccessible to service. Added watering system and solved the problem. The Phaeton has batteries in a drawer so very easy access. Would like to have watering system on it, with the ease of access a nice to have.

For me it was a matter of access, or lack thereof. No access to house batteries. I added flow-rite and solved the problem. I just top off batteries ever couple of months with distilled water and am done. I am pluigged into shore power all of the time.

Different brand, but I also highly recommend the product concept. Pulling all the caps and filling cells individually is a task I don't look forward to and therefore it does not get done as often as it should. A few minutes to pull out the water jug and squeeze the bulb a few times every couple of months gets done.

Yes....It's the company that makes the ProFill battery filler. You'll will find it to be the best money you ever spent. Shop around various online RV part stores, like PPL and RVUpgrades for the best price.

I have the Pro-Fill RV Model and love it. To get to my batteries in the front of my Arctic Fox fifth wheel I had to lean way over and put my face away too close to the batteries for comfort. You can put the fill port anywhere you want it so that is comfortable to get to and it's great, love it, wouldn't leave without it

I'm a brand new full-timer pulling an Arctic Fox 27-5L that has a lot to learn.

I purchased the Flo-Rite Pro-Fill to water my 4 X T-105 batteries. The system didn't fit well in that each individual watering float seemed too large for the T-105 opening and caused the small floats to bind. Ultimately, after overfilling the batteries a couple times, I lost faith in the product and just removed the system and went back to manual inspection. In theory, looks like it would be a good thing, but just didn't work for me.

I bought my battery fill system at Quartzsite this past January. Excellent price and installed very easy into my 4, T-125 batteries. Well worth the price to be able to fill batteries with so much ease.
