Sorry this happened.

Your warning should be taken seriously by anyone who hasn't moved their batteries to a location where they aren't hanging under the coupler a-frame or in a through-the-floor box.

Just like checking tires, anything that could possibly come loose and fall off should be checked before starting a trip, or for that matter before starting out in the morning while on a trip.

Pretend you are flying a small airplane and do the same kind of pre-flight walk-around check.

Even if a perfect design, "stuff" happens.

Oh, I agree. I always do a walk around prior to driving, but who can predict that a plastic box is going to $h1t the bed and crack, dropping your battery like an explosive turd out into the highway. I donít have that kind of clairvoyance. Super annoying.

Im here to tell you the battery is not the only thing that falls out of an XLR.
It would behoove all XLR owners to peak under inside the underbelly and make sure is all secure. Ask me how I know.
