    There are fill lines on the side of the battery, which you would have to remove to see. From memory I'm going to guess 1/2 to 1" below opening. The plates should be covered for sure!

    I recently swapped mine out for a Deka dry cell after my 2011 battery leaked all over my hand. It was about half way filled and doesn't hold a charge for very long (when I pulled it out)

    The factory batteries don't last too long. It's best to get a gel battery.
    No mess and no maintaining needed.

    Mine last 4-5 years............trickle charge over the winter 100% of the time. If you keep the electrolyte level filled and use a automatic trickle charger they will last several years!
