Found a great way to add water to RV batteries

Maybe been mentioned before:

For those hard to reach area's of the battery compartments on any RV, to add distilled water get a cooks basting tool. Draw the water into the basting tool, remove the caps and you can reach the tops of the batteries with the tool and squirt the water into the batteries with out removing the batteries.

Took me 10 min. to service all four RV batteries, without have to move/remove any of them. Be sure you use distilled water.

I use a washup bottle from my old print shop days. https://valleylitho.com/32-oz-wash-up-bottle You can add an extension if needed. I use a piece of plastic water line from an old ice maker.

Mine are pretty easy to,access. The Turkey baster should be perfect.
(As long as I return it before she misses it!)

I did 43 1/2 years "hard time" 😁 in print shops! I'm still scraping ink from under my nails!
I retired in 2017... sad to see an industry I made a living from all those years fade into the sunset. 😢
