    Our Kountrylite was manufactured march 2009 and already the battery compartment is
    corroding and appears to be due to battery venting ,check yours to see if a similair problem is occuring.
    temporary fix I am using rollmat foam under the batterys until I can find a box that fits
    seem to be working at the moment.
    one opinion is they should be fitted with gel batteries not acid.
    any comments

    hi rex , i dont like the gel batteries. you could look for batteries with a vent on the side and a drain tube or filled for life sealed . why not make a plastic tray with a drain on the bottom through a hole in the floor. are your batteries getting over charged that can make them boil. doundslike a design fault kick someones ass i would. sprinkle bi carbonate soda around under your batteries to help kill the acid.
    cheers alan.
