Hello All,

I have moved recently to UK and the gel Batteries from my California have gone.
Maybe someone can help me with details where I could buy 2 of them.

Many thanks for your help.

Great, Thanks for your info.

I think I can replace them for AGM batteries, will check at the Tayna link.

Thanks again for your help.

Whilst you could replace the batteries with AGM, then consider venting them. The Sonneschein batteries originally fitted are GEL batteries and thus do not vent, therefore the risk of explosion is greatly reduced.

Also should you change from GEL batteries, then you will likely need to alter the dip switches which are behind the central control unit in the drivers cab. Basically you have two settings, one for Gel batteries and the other for 'wet' led acid batteries.

How do you know the batteries have gone?
