Sorry for the delay. Batteries appear to be 12volt. They are large, no ports, with a recessed flip handle.

If you have batteries similar to the ones in our coach, each battery has two rectangular caps that plug three fill ports each. The batteries look like no maintenance batteries but they are not. You will have pry the caps off and top off the cells periodically. They will loose a little water even if you don't run on just batteries often because the convertor is constantly giving a little charge to maintain them. Check them once per month.

Use distilled water.

Also, be sure to switch the battery disconnect off when you aren't using it so the small amount of parasitic power usage doesn't kill your batteries.
