checking coach batteries

I'm a new motorhome owner, so laugh now. Georgetown 300NB.
Checking the coach batteries, which I am looking at just to the left of the entrance door ... I thought I would see caps to unscrew to check the water level, but I don't. How do I check the water level?

You might be seeing the newer type of battery cap. Do you have two very large plates on top? Each of these is one cap that covers 3 cells. Pry them off with a large regular screwdriver.

They appear to be Maintenance Free batteries. It is usually printed somewhere on the battery. Most likely in the areas where all of the print is or on the side where they place the battery model numbers and ratings. Everything looks smooth on top of both batteries so I don't see any type of access to check them. The only area not smooth is where the handle is located.
