Last year battery in our Factory Edge failed.
Wife was driving down the road and smelled what you smelled. Pulled over cut the engine off opened the hood but didn't know what was wrong. Found a small reapir shop down the hill. He saw the battery was hot and boiling and about to explode.
Replaced it with a NAPA which would not hold enough charge to start the car first of this month,result in cascading visiting Ford Dealers in Russelville Ark, Shawnee Oklahoma, and Camping World, in Oklahoma City, and For Dealer in Texas.
New Battery, radiator fan, rewiring the car at CW, and water pump in Texas.
Take too long for all the details but about $4,000.00 from a bad new battery!
How did a bad battery cause all those problems?

It didn't.
The battery going bad was a SYMPTOM and not the cause.

Thanks for all the input. I have a new to me 05 Winnebago sightseer 29R. The battery was a maintenance free battery. Low miles but things have timed out and I imagine long periods of being idle. I will be changing out the coach batteries next. The generator only had 30 hours but Im going to get it serviced as well. Last week was kinda crazy seems like everything I touched broke. But I wouldn't change a thing Im really all around happy with my new world.
