Leaking Batteries

I have a 2011 F-350 and the batteries continue to leak to the point there eating up the bracket that hold them down.

Taking it in this Friday

Has anybody had this problem?

I personally don't have the problem, but I saw a 2011 on the lot when I bought mine with 22k on the clock. drivers side battery was leaking and crusty. corroded the bracket. This alone was enough for me to pass on it and get another truck with 30k more on the clock and a color I didn't particularly care for. I had alot of leaking battery and corrosion issues on my last truck.

I would get it fixed asap, that crap gets everywhere and corrodes everything.

My 08 leaked bad enough to strip the paint off the bottom of the hood and it ate the cotton gauze out of my CAI filter.

My driver's side was leaking also, but they only replaced one and it looks like it is leaking again. I might switch to gel batteries.

They also replaced my bracket because it was showing signs of corroding.
