Adding fluid to a starting/cranking battery?

Recommended Posts

I have a group 24 cranking battery, and I don't see anywhere on the top of it that opens so you can add fluid. Are they not meant to have fluid added periodically? I removed the stickers on the top but theres no access.

 

Its a Nautilus motomaster group 24 starting/cranking battery.

The first sign your battery is soon cooked is adding water.

When I was tournament guy I replaced them immediately .

It does seem like an odd maintenance . And messing with battery acid lol. Not to mention no where on the batteries does it say to check the levels

    • 12v Socket to marine battery

      I use a trolling motor on my SportsPal canoe and I'd like to have a removable 12v socket for it. I go island camping a couple times a year and it'd be nice to blow up an air mattress with the battery or charge a phone. I know I can buy the minnkota battery box but figure I can save some $ and do a DIY project. Anyone done that? Things to know?

    • Trolling Motor Battery, Starter Battery and Electronics

      So my mystery continues. After about 90 minutes of heavy trolling motor use (high winds/waves) my electronics crap out. They're hooked to the trolling motor batteries, which are new. I've been all over the electrical system at the batteries. Cleaned and tightened the terminals, etc. I checked the voltage on the batteries. One was 12.3, the other was 9!   The boat is a 17' Yamaha G3 with a 115 Yamaha. Charged is a Minn Kota.   So a few questions if you don't mind.   1. When I was reconne

    • New battery for SUV opinions NF

      So I've literally never changed a battery in any of my vehicles.   Tomorrow might be the day.   My bro in law geniously decided to clean the vehicle and play music for six hours, now I can't jump it.   Still nothing after a 4 hour charge, so im assuming if it won't charge by tonight I'll be replacing it.   What's a good CT option? I don't have a princess Auto or anything around so im basically stuck with Walmart or CT   Thanks in advance for suggestions!
