Trojan 24V watering system

Just recieved and installed this battery watering system. No more crawling into the generator compartment to peer into the batteries, or removing 3 of the cables to get the caps off.
Of course there are 4 caps. But a pretty slick system.

Nice Mark. I'm wondering what kind of batteries are you using and how you have them wired up and why you would have to remove wires to water.

I have 4 6V Trojan batteries, 2 in each battery box. All wired to provide 12V to the rig. Some of the battery cable ends come across the very ends of the caps so I have to loosen them to get the caps off.

That's a great product! I have the same system on my 72v golf cart and it saves a ton of time...

Okay I understand now why you had to remove the wires Mark. I have my batteries all in one box so I never had that problem.
Great excuse to buy the watering system however.....lol

I believe it was 168.00 free shipping from Amazon. There are a couple other brands selling individual cell caps and the hose to connect, but I chose the one that was made for my batteries.
