I noticed that the battery box in my new camper had a small amount of water in the bottom, so I pulled up the battery and was surprised to find that the box was not bolted to the frame. There is a one-inch strap that goes under the frame and snaps together at the top. I thought it was just to keep the cover from blowing off, but apparently that is all that keeps the battery box from moving.
Is that sufficient, or did the dealer forget to bolt it down? At the very least, I'm going to drill a couple of holes in the bottom of the box to let any water drain out.
I just had the camper on a mountainous trip with steep, curvy and bouncy roads, and the battery doesn't seem to have moved at all. Should the box be bolted down or is the strap sufficient? Thanks.
