2014 Escape 19 battery level

My brother inlaw has a 2014 Escape 19 .He said he does not have any way check his battery level also no USB ports.
The dinette section inside gets a lot of condensation where do I check if he has the weep holes . Any 2014 escape 19 out there that can answer these 3 for me.
Thanks

I'm assuming that neither you or your BIL own a multimeter? If that's the case then you can either buy a cheap multimeter or if you want something more simple then one of these 12V socket voltmeter's will suffice.

Even though I have a half dozen voltmeters I still bought one of those socket voltmeters I linked to. We didn't have a battery meter mounted in our E19 and there are times that I didn't feel like breaking out the DVM just to take a quick look at the battery. With the 12V socket meter you can turn on the 12V disconnect switch and at a glance see where your battery level is. It has a very bright and easy to see display, the added temp reading is a nice bonus.

I found the meter that I received to be reasonably accurate. It reads right at 0.1V lower than my two expensive Fluke meters so I know to always add .1V to any voltage reading.

My first thought was you wanted to check the electrolyte in the batteries. If so, if they are lead-acid batteries there will be caps on the top that you pry off. I use a wide blade, flat screwdriver. They may be sealed batteries, such as glass mat or some other type. If that's the case there are no caps because there is no evaporation when they charge and no need to ever check the electrolyte level.

I'm not sure if there is checkable electrolyte in lithium batteries but someone else here will know.

It doesn't sound right that he's getting a lot of condensation inside the dinette seats unless he's camping in quite cold weather. Especially not enough to need weep holes for it. I suppose he could leave a dinette seat open for some air circulation on those very cold days.

Lithium

There is no electrolyte maintenance possible with lithium batteries.
