It does reduce out-gassing of the water and evaporation, reducing the need to check and add water. This is especially true with single stage chargers that "boil" the batteries. If you have the time to check the water level every month or so, it isn't necessary. It's pretty much unnessesary if you have a multi-stage charger.

I see. Thanks for clearing that up. I do have a multi stage charger as well as a battery tender.
I see that you have two Harley's. I ride too. I have an '03 Ultra Classic. Love it! Ride safe when your not RVing!

Bought our present MH 3/2011 in Fl. Last summer replaced the ol' single stage with a PD9245. Without thinking, I topped the batteries off forgetting mineral oil. Still waiting to add anything to them

Yup me and DW both ride and the Harley's (2 Street Glides) are always our towd. Basically we RV to ride all year long. Motorcyclists know why dogs always have their head out the window Our two Jacks ride too.

That is exactly what I want to do. Use my Ultra as the towed. Then, when we get to wherever it is that we head out to, we can jump on the bike and go exploring. Providing it isn't pouring, that is!
Say, what does "DW" stand for? I have been seeing it a lot and for the life of me I can't figure out what it means. i know it refers to our better half, but what does DW stand for? ( dedicated wife? ) Just a guess.
And yeah, as a fellow motorcycle enthusiast I do know why a dog sticks his head out the window!!
Ride Safe!

DW= (insert D word, Wife) most fellas will use or mean Devoted, Dedicated. Under certain circumstances one may mean other D words. I'll let you use your own imagination here as my Devoted Wife reads the forum

In all fairness, DW's have the same options using DH.

Got it! Now that you mention it I have seen DW's refer to their hubby's as DH's.
Thanks for clearing that nagging mystery up for me.
Naturally we mean dedicated, devoted, dearest, darling wife when they press us for what that means. Especially when they read the same threads!! ;-)
