I was thinking of making a wooden box with a drain hole to match the hole in the compartment, but would like other ideas.
I really wonder about these RV manufacturers sometimes when they design this stuff. It's not rocket science and they've been at it for years.
The battery and the box to secure it "comes from the selling dealer" you need to contact FR and inform that they have a dealer "not doing their contractual due diligence " and have them fix the issue ASAP!
That issue can be a big one, if the battery comes loose and sticks a metal frame piece and grounds it's self (which can happen while traveling very easy) it could explode and make a very big mess for you and your insurance company.
So stop playing around with this issue and please have it fixed in a proper way so all can enjoy the camping experience as it was design to do.
Hope this helps and Happy Camping
