Interstate Maintenance free design...
Interstate NON maintenance free battery with pry up recessed "tri caps". Check & water as needed.
Great photos camaraderie,,, Thank You !!!
Our 2013 Sunseeker has batteries like the top photo,,, with different posts,,, so if I understand right they are Maintenance Free ???
I just looked,,, the Motorcraft battery I put in my 03 F-150 is Maintenance Free,,, it has a large plastic cover over the top,,, our 2011 EDGE Motorcraft Battery is not,, as is the Motorcraft Battery in the 2013 E450 !!!
Both those have caps,,, very tight fitting,,, but they can be removed !!!
Time to get some distilled water !!!
PS: both my lawn tractor have Maintenance Free Batteries !!!
