Yes they do. It's on the caps.

Oh, and Ben, my seatbox was just redone with bedliner so I hope it will last longer than paint.

Vents or no vents.

Oh definitely. If this were a normal forum, I would just put my fan club on the ignore list.

Buy a vented battery and install the genuine Defender vent tube. It's part number LR031919.

Item 6.

Oh dear! What hath my simple question wrought?

I'll go through this thread when I get a chance. But let me clarify quickly: I am not looking to plug what looks like actual vents in the bottom. I'm more interested in sealing the corner seams and bad build quality gaps. I'm thinking of dust and dirt from normal road and backroad driving.

I would definitely seal up any and all seams.

The NAS box just has 2 small vents on the battery side.
Mine were completely clogged with decade plus old dirt/mud so there was no venting whatsoever.
Thank God the PO didnt explode.

I've never been able to keep the dust and dirt out--it seeps through the grommeted holes in between the cables no matter what you do. Best to use marine-grade cables and terminals and a marine-grade fuse panel if you're going that route so that you won't have any issues if water does get in.
