Phil,

Bought it off Amazon, called flow-rite system, one kit for two batteries, so two kits are needed, but can be hooked up as one for all 4 batteries. Will take a picture later today. Easy to install.

As for Texas, windy, cool and rain. Next year planning for Florida for sure. How is it down in Florida for you?

Thanks Skip that's something I should look into. I still get some corrosion but not as bad as I had with the old control unit.
Florida has been cooler than usual but lots of sun. Temps daytime are low 70's and night low 50's. Very enjoyable but need a sweatshirt at night. We are 100 miles south of Orlando.

When I got my new 2012 390BH, I almost pulled all my hair out, trying to stopped the corrosion on the battery strap's metal hardware. I had piles of corrosion dropped from the straps on to the tray. Finally the straps metal fell apart.

To make a long story short, I replaced the straps with cheap solid rubber bungee cords. I sprayed all terminal, strap hooks and tray hook with CRC Battery Terminal Protector. The corrosion stopped. I keep my rig plugged in with switches on, all the time.

We have had the same problem since we got our Berkshire in 2011. Have replaced the straps about 6 times. Last year finally decided to go without the straps-no problems. Still getting corrosion on tray. Just keep cleaning and repainting. If anyone gets a good solution, please advise.

I bought a few of the above mentioned battery mats. I cut them up and placed pieces of the mat on top and around the batteries. Have very minimal corrosion issues since.
