Wrong order, check electrolyte and add distilled water only if the plates are expose and then only add enough to cover plates.
Charge batteries fully, then fill to proper level.

The electrolyte expands (Grows) during the charge process and the cells may be over filled if topped off while partially discharged. Also can bubble over while charging.


Jeff: The attached pictures are from the Trojan website.

Also, how often do you charge your batteries?
They ought to be recharged after each use.

It that case, add enough distilled water to cover plates, then charge and fill to proper level after charging.

Use this picture for a reference, unless you want corrosion everywhere. If you fill up to the bottom of the "ring", you will have acid mess to deal with. I know those pics came from trojan website, but i also know what a pain dealing with acid everywhere is. As long as the fluid is always above the plate dividers (those are not really the battery plates just spacers), you are not harming the batteries, nor losing any capacity. Having more fluid in there does not get you any more range or battery life.
