battery reposition

I have a 12v house bat and 2 6v. Not good access to check the 2 6v. is it safe to move the 2 6v underneath my bench seat at the table instead of under the RV?

Great question.

I went to AGM's and still probably shouldn't have put the batteries under the bench. For now everything is fused and they're staying under the bench.

"...underneath my bench seat at the table instead of under the RV..."

If you mean inside your coach... Really a very bad idea. Those fumes can kill you and your family!!!!!!!!!!!

If you mean in the storage area under your bench... I can't comment.

Batteries should never be mounted in a space that shares air with living space. They always need to be vented into exterior airspace. Batteries create explosive hydrogen as a natural part of their normal operation.

There are battery watering kits available.
