    I'll tell you the same thing I told techo-babble guy (since I know you didn't read it the first time I said it): Go tell it to the battery manufacturer who posted the venting calculation...

    Yea, bugs burned for a different reason - the factory didn't use hose clamps on the fuel lines. German engineering at its finest.

    Talk about jumping on a bandwagon.


    For the record:

    The OP asked about putting a vented battery in the bed of his truck.

    Nice.

    Too bad you missed that part about me NOT advocating a sealed box.

    Basically the same unit. Has the same control buttons, but a slightly different display. Looks just like the B&D:

    AGMs are VRLA (sealed). VRLA batteries don't vent unless overcharged. Technically, all lead-acid batteries should be in a vented enclosure - but in the real world, you don't really have to worry...

    Not really. I have a 400w el cheapo, and a 1000w el cheapo. Both work so I don't spend any time worrying about it. Both modified square wave, but that doesn't bother me.

    The good stuff?...

    Or maybe I'll be tinkering. I like to tinker. I want one of these, but to get one, I'd probably have to build it myself:

    Also, depending on which inverter, you might need a fuse to protect the feed to that as well.

    I'm liking the looks of that Samlex. It can be forced on and forced off, and IIRC can have an indicator LED hooked up as well. Haven't checked the price though.

    The area is red is the place to check for a sharp edge. The area in yellow I usually polish up with an emory cloth to make sure it's a nice smooth place for the seal to rotate on. I also usually use...

    Never heard of a wheel seal. Sounds like some sort of goop that comes in a pressurized can.

    Here's a more or less typical assembly (in general - not Mitsu specific):
