I assume sealed. They can't be opened to add water or acid.

If you shake one of your batteries, does it sound like there is water inside?

Since it is a truck battery I would bet the farm that it is a flooded battery. There may be a giant sticker on top covering the top cell plugs. If so, You can peel the sticker off to check water levels.

Hey Ryland, I'm sorry it has taken this long to answer your question. Within a day or so from posting my last, I spend most of the month of June in the hospital, so I am just now logging back in. Been out and about for quite a few months, but just now checking back into the forum. Sorry. The batteries I have are flooded, and have round pop in caps, or screw in caps. I did a test drive around the yard the other day and I got about 20 mins of slow, high amp driving. About 3.5 miles. I found one battery low on water.
