(The batteries are not AGM or dry cell)
Last weekend we planned to spend the weekend at a state park. When we got to storage the batteries were stone dead ( in two weeks they completely died, they were in the off position) we had our generator with us, charged them up and headed to the camp ground. Got things charged up enough to run for the night.. Next morning checked inside the battery boxes and found two 12 volt batteries with corrosion on the post ?!?! Called Camping World, they arranged to get the rig in right away... Confirmed that we were promised two 6-volts. You can see in the picture we added two more. When we went to pick it up we questioned the safety of the install, there is no venting.
They said our front compartment is sealed
, and the venting is in the floor of the "sealed" compartment... Have you seen this before, do you think it's safe... very concerned. Service Manager at Camping World Avondale,AZ said there is NO reason for concern, the "gases" from the batteries do not rise ...We question his knowledge on gases and on the install. Thoughts??
