P.S. I have a nice battery box I've been saving for years if anyone needs 1 ?
Battery hold down IS important with all circumstances. Movement and bouncing around of a lead-acid battery will flake off pieces off the lead and build up in bottom of battery till it reaches the plates and you then have a shorted cell, missing 2volts. Have seen this happen many times over the decades.
