Residential Refrigerator Batteries

Today I ordered a 2014 36CKTS. The dealer told me the unit did not come with the four batteries for the 18cf refrigerator, I would have to purchase those separately. Is this correct?

You have a dealer that is trying to get off cheap. When I picked up my 36 CKTS, there were 4 brand new batteries installed. I believe you will find that most dealers will provide the batteries.

Batteries not included. However, they were negotiable at the time of purchase along with other things. At this point you can still negotiate the price of the batteries.
There are other things that you can do down the road that are situation dependent.

I didn't have to negotiate or ask for the batteries. They just stuck them in. I've actually been quite pleased with my Dealer. They seem always ready to help and go a step further than necessary.

I did not have to negotiate either however you make an excellent point. It is all about the dealer. But I did ask the question before I signed on the dotted line because you never know what the dealership policy is until you ask.

If you mean that you have the stock absorption fridge then this thread has nothing to do with your unit. However, your fridge is not 12v in either case.
