Almost Dry coach batteries

Due to my dumb "Things to do List" I let my batterys on my Class A almost run dry.
Has anyone tried and had any sucess with the kits that are availiable to keep the batterys hydrated ??
There are a number on e-bay and various web sites (The quanity and price's are overpowering).
Before I invest $100 or more on a set-up, I would like to know the pluses and minnuses.

Thanks Larry

Put four ounces of mineral oil in each cell if they are six volt or two ounces if twelve volt. Bring water level up to split ring and evaporation and corrosion will be almost nonexistent.

Yes... I installed Flow-Rite system
Qwik-Fill Dual 12-Volt Battery Watering System - Flow-Rite Controls MP-2000 - Battery Accessories - Camping World
Very easy to keep topped off. Two down sides; No way of knowing if ALL the cells are actually being filled, 2nd you may have to purchase and install Battery Post Stand-offs to allow for installation of the watering tubes and routing of the battery cables..

I have the ProFil watering system. It allows for easy and quick watering. Not automatic, you still have to do it. But it makes it so quick and easy one tends not to avoid doing it.
