2017 2800qs maybe I am missing somthing?

I have been reading everyone's questions about battery usage and watching voltage meters showing an actual voltage of the battery. My qs has two batteries under the steps but I have not seen any meter that shows the battery voltage. If my memory is correct there is a battery indicater of charge on the led panel that also shows the levels of all the water tanks. Is that the only indicater for the battery status or am I missing seeing where it is and if that is the only indicater, do I need to buy a meter of some kind?

Some of us have installed our own meters to better know how they are.

I have the Forester 2801qs which is your units sister. The only battery monitor that comes with the rig is the one you refer to. Anyone who boondocks and relies on their batteries usually installs a third party battery monitor. Now there are dozens of different brands out there ranging from 10 bucks to several hundred.
