I was reading through the owner’s manual in preparation for my first oil change and saw that LR recommends inspecting the battery by removing screws and adding distilled water if the water level is low.

Is this a normal procedure I should start doing? And how often should I check on the batter. It is new as of May 2017

most battery's are now maintenance free so that means you dont top them up,

you might also have an AGM battery in you truck,
you will have to read the battery and get a part number to verify what you have.
THE AGM is a do not open it battery.
The old style lead acid battery might be able to be opened .

BUT first you should go read your battery to figure out what you have

Save your self the hassle.
I checked my battery this morning. There is no maintenance, its sealed.
I scanned the code ....GENUINE JAGUAR LAND ROVER AGM VRLA BATTERY 90AH BH42-10655-BABH4210655BA.
I keep my RR hooked up to a CTEK multi 7002. (https://smartercharger.com/products/batterychargers/ctek-multi-us-7002/)
I use the 10' indicator panel which I ran into the rear seat area. It makes connecting simple. (https://smartercharger.com/products/accessories-cat/ctek-comfort-indicator-panel/)
Amazon & eBay will sell it for a better price.
My RR when in the garage is always on the CTEK.

Awesome. I’ll post a picture of my battery for future reference, but I’m glad it’s maintenance free (aside from keeping it charged!)
