Thanks for helping!
Tap on the bottom of the box, does it sound hollow, or like a thud because the weight of batteries is on it?

It's open! Yes! Flat head screw driver in the holes and turn it to the right - my first screwdriver was too short!

Thanks so much for helping!!!

That'll be $4910 please. $10 for knowing where to put the tool and $4900 for knowing what tool to use. .

If the hole inside is square, the tool is a T handle with a tapered square. Most any thing that fits the hole closely should work.

Usually more than two for starting the bus isnít a thing. I think the house batteries are somewhere else, these must just be for starting. Correct me if Iím wrong.

My Genesis with a DT466 came with only one Group 31 start battery.

Well, my bus came with three batteries and the tray is clearly designed to hold three of them. Having just bought and installed three replacement batteries, I'm interested to know whether I could have bought just two or one instead.
