97 Holiday Rambler chassis battery question?
Merry Christmas all, Dave here. I have a question about my chassis batteries....I did my periodic check of them yesterday and I had to add some water to the most inboard battery but the outboard one was more or less full. I might have overfilled the inboard one because afterward I saw water leaking down on the ground and had the smell of one of them venting. I checked them this mornng the inboard battery along with the battery compartment are very warm. I pulled the caps off of both batteries, and the outboard battery is cool to the touch, the inboard battery was warm and as I checked the levels, the inboard battery was venting fumes which appeard to be a vapor coming from inside. I checked the level and it seems fine so could one battery be getting over charged or would this indicate a bad battery or something else in the electrical system? Thanks for any input....Dave
