Howdy,

The trays look similar, but they are different sizes. The parts manuals also do not jive with the proper fitment on later TM's

Where are the simple rubber flap type terminal protectors available from?

Doing a bing search, every possible type comes up in images other than the type pictured above, and the same type I've seen used on many trucks.

Asking in anticipation of putting new batteries in my soon to be delivered generator.

Thanks

I never use these covers... they are frankly nothing but a PITA. I take them off of every machine I go through.
