You don't have to see the level, it shuts off and doesn't over fill. Have used it twice now and am happy with it.

Those work great. However, I have the battery cables (4 house batteries) crossing over the caps and a bundle of heavy gauge wire crossing over the rearmost caps. I can't even get the caps off, much less use the filler!

Grrr, I see a lot of re-routing in my future. Dumb, dumb and inconsiderate way the factory does things. Most things.

I am lucky, I am able to maneuver my cables just enough to fill my batteries. I agree some thought about the end user would have been nice.

I recently changed to AGM (sealed) batteries to avoid this problem. I boiled my previous batteries dry! Some how I managed to forget to check the water levels. No longer trust my memory.

We currently own a 2012 378T . I use a wooden handle from an old rake and GENTLY work it under the hydraulic cables to the frame and lift cables up/ off the back caps.The handle is long enough to wedge against entry door when it's open when I work on them. I also use a mirror that has built in light to check liquid level.

PS I was always under impression I had 4 batteries - turns out there's only 2, each one with 2 battery caps
