Dropped it at my dealer for a few final repairs, found out the service writer that I think has been a big part of the issue no longer works there.

Rear window, side flashing, brake light has lost a few LEDs, basement door. They're going to try finding out why the nose gets water in it.

We'll see what happens.

Yep, both batteries were low on water. 1 had 5 cells low and the other 4 cells low. It was still covering the plates, but i had to add about 20oz to bring them up. Hope that helps.?

I'm gonna check em in a few minutes, been working on a couple other things and got distracted from doing it earlier.
Sounds like they are being overcharged badly, causing the water to bubble out. Check the voltage on your alternator, I'd be the problem is there, not the batteries. Batteries don't lose electrolyte by themselves.

Edit: your later post #2495 confirms this.

What did you do to your camper today?

While at Bass Pro Shops over the weekend, I bought a 5 in 1 Professional Weather Station. I am thinking about using the outside TV mount for the sensor. (Just another toy - haha)
