I din't know if it the "best one" but it works for me. Got on Amazon several years ago had had the dealer install one on this unit. Should have DIY as the botched the install and had to redo a third of it.

I have one from Trojan. Bought this when I replaced my house batteries. They are great, it makes it easy to keep the batteries watered without a mess and done regularly.

Mine is from Battery Watering Technologies and I just "watered" the batteries for the first time. I installed it myself (easy install) and once I figured out how to operate it I am happy. I have to assume that it works as advertised as my batteries are not easy to access for visual checking. I bought the system from a US Batteries dealer at the big tent in Quartzsite.

I use Pro Fill on both the RV and boat. I always preferred wet cell batteries. With a little maintenance, I've had Trojan T105's last 10 years. All watering systems seem pretty much the same and worth whatever the cost

Bought a used 48V system for $40 on EBay...6X4 (8V batteries)=24 caps. Had to buy 2’ of rubber tubing as my spacing is different and had to cut notches on the side of the 12 caps to fit my batteries...turn to lock. Used the spout off a gear oil bottle on a water bottle to connect to the plastic line to fill with distilled water by holding the bottle a foot above the top of the batteries...upside down.

Thanks, all. I am about to do the upgrade to L60H batteries and will definitely be including easy watering in the process. Happy Motoring..... and boondocking! TB
