I'm aware of the risk and made sure the areas I drilled had some air space under them and not in proximity to lines. Then when drilling I barely push on the drill, use a sharp bit and let it cut. You can usually feel when it's about to pop through because the bit starts to vibrate a little. Then you push ever so gently but tense up your entire upper body such that when the bit pops through, it only goes down a small amount. That sounds about right don't it? I'm sure you've been that and done that many times.Looking good, gutsy drilling with the tank in place but doable as you proved.
I understand your concern, and that's why I asked about it earlier in this thread. I was thinking the battery gasses might rise inside of the enclosure and be trapped if the vent hole was too low. But, extending the tube up high in the box such as shown in post #23 above is basically the same thing as a hole drilled higher up on the side of the box. I'm interested if you can tell me how >> how is that going to have a different effect as sticking the tube through a hole drilled in the side of the box at the same height, then having it turn down the outside of the box and go through the floor. It's the same effect the way I look at it. But if it can be pointed out how I'm wrong, I'm listening.I'm kinda leary on the vent tube thing. I think it will not work like that, not sure though.
after some research some batteries have a vent built in to the top portion of the battery, look for a hole near the top side of the battery case.
