A definite issue with a battery that requires ventilation because of the off-gassing it has. Tsk Tsk Forest River! The bottom and top are identical pieces and they just weren't big enough to contain the batter and wires.
I built a new box for the 6 volts and installed the disconnect switch on the front of the box so it's super easy to reach. Attached a picture to show you. The front piece of the battery box is screwed to the main box, but also is hinged to the right side. So I can removed the screws and then hinge the whole front panel out of the way without removing the switch to get the batteries out of the box if necessary. They are maintenance free batteries so hopefully that's not an issue.
Hope this helps.
