Battery Tray Removal

How do you remove the battery trays? I can't seem to find a release like the slides used on the drawers inside the coach. I noticed a little tab bent at the outer end of the slide that doesn't move and was wondering if I need to bend that tab back to get the slide out. Don't want to do this if I going to have a bunch of small steel balls fall out of the slide.

Suggestions?

I just went through the same thing on our '08 Endeavor. There are no releases on those heavy duty glides. You have to pull the batteries, pull the tray as far out as it will go and then remove the bolts securing the gliders to the bottom of the compartment. Last you have to pick up the whole assembly and lift it out. I found that many of the small screws securing the glides to the tray were corroded to the point where I couldn't back them out. Had to drill them out.

Well at this point I think I'll clean the tray as best I can while it's still in the coach because It looks like everything was pop rivet vs. bolted. Will verify tomorrow.

Hi Ken, I know this is a different Coach, maybe the tray might be close to help you out......? This was a good thread on battery tray recon http://www.irv2.com/forums/f103/batt...up-222066.html

Checked the trays and they are pop riveted to the slide and slide is welded to battery compartment frame. Looks like I'll just be cleaning up the tray and next time will consider removing the 20 plus rivets to paint and seal the trays.

Well some times you just have to stand back a bit and take another look. I was in the process of buffing the battery tray when I notice the bolts below the trays which when removed allowed me to remove the whole tray including bottom below the tray. So looks like I will be getting some Por-15 to seal up the tray.
