8289WS - Trojan SCS225 Batteries
I have two Trojan SCS225 Batteries inbound for the new RV.
I "thought" that it would be no problem purchasing Battery Boxes for these batteries, but found that's not the case. I've spent two days corresponding with the major Battery Box manufacturers, and the bottom line is that I cannot find Battery Boxes that will accommodate the SCS225 and still fit in the front of the 8289WS without having to turn the sideways, which eats up a lot of storage room.
The OEM Battery Box is not vented to the outside of the compartment, so I'm thinking of mounting them on a Tray, as opposed to putting them in a Box.
I'm also installing the Quick-Fill Battery Watering System, so the height of the Batteries + the Quick-Fill is also an issue.
Soliciting thoughts on using a battery Tray, and then finding/fabricating some sort of cover that sits down over the batteries (inverted storage box for example) with some vent holes at the top yet contain most gas vapors to the vicinity of the Batteries.
If anyone else has a solution, I'd appreciate hearing how you've solved the problem.
