I know mine are NOT long enough.

But I would not go through the trouble on my 309RB.
One of these battery fillers work just fine.

Easy Peasy for me.
I realize some Berks battery compartments my not have room to use this filler.

And it's really not that cool either.

I have room for the filler but my batteries have black cases. Can't see the fill line. I know the filler is supposed to stop when the water level has been reached. Not always though.

Same deal with me, Paul. I have overfilled a couple and had them boil out. I looked at the automatic fillers, but can't see any cost benefit ratio there. And those puppies are expensive!

Went out to the coach today and checked battery compartment. Looks like I have enough cable length to do it. Just need to take loom off of right cable attached to wall. Looks like I'd need a kwikee 14 3/4 x 21 inch tray. Here are some pics. Have you guys with the 2014's actually looked at them?

I see the notes on Moryde site says "Add 2" for overall width and 3" for overall depth".

Would that be a problem?

Joe, don't know if you noticed, but there is one that is 14 inches wide by 21 inches deep and one that is 21 inches wide and 14 inches deep. I looked at these and was wondering if the height would clear the lip at the bottom of the compartment. Let me know how it looks. I like that brand. I want to put one in also.

Dan, I think that additional space that they are talking about is the sliding apparatus frame.
