I sick of cleaning corrosion off my battery terminals every couple of weeks. Ive also replaced my batteries at least 3 times since Ive owned the truck over the last several years. The local battery shops say this is a common problem with the Dodge diesels. I need batteries once again and Im determined to go with a 8D glass mat battery (1450 CCA's) and mount it in a battery box in the bed of my truck. Does anyone have experience with doing something like this. Im not sure of cable size, lengths or any other specifics. Im going to use my truck for camping with a camper shell, the electrical power back there will come in handy (hydrogen gas is not a concern it is a sealed battery). Any suggestions?
