Batteries

Should I be checking the water in the batteries of my 2018 Georgetown 378 XL? If so how often.

From what I have heard, at a minimum at least once a month

Exactly!! To make the job easy, get the dual battery watering system:
Qwik-Fill Dual 12-Volt Battery Watering System, Walmart has the best price
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Flow-Rite...&wl13=&veh=sem

And this: https://www.rvupgradestore.com/Flow-...3516FFA462C35E

Refill batteries, no overfill! Worth every penny I paid for them-- single battery quick refill is also available if you only have 1 battery to refill.
Tried to post a pic of what my setup looks like, but wouldn't allow it.

Not all batteries need water. Some are maintenance free. Like mine were in my 2013 378XL. Since then I replaced mine with 2 Trojan 1275 and a watering system. You may have 4 maintenance free batteries in which case no water is needed nor can you add water to them. They have sealed caps and are hard to remove.
Good luck and let us know what you find out.

If the caps pop off, it is wet, a good idea to check monthly if you use it a lot. Otherwise a close inspection of posts, rust, water, connection tightness etc minimum 6 months. It is a lot easier than having to troubleshoot and fix problems later. Be sure the posts are coated with battery post corrosion preventer. Also check for a good clean ground connection at the frame, rust there can cause all kinds of problems that are difficult to figure out while on the road.
