I came home from a 3 week trip to find a pile of goo below my back right fender. Uhoh! The battery had apparently gurgled over and eaten into my concrete!! I took it out and proceeded to wash the battery and spare well out thoroughly with soap and water. . .

1) Is this enough treatment or do I need to clean it better? (The paint peeled in places in the well)

2) Has anyone used a non-maintenance type gel battery? How well does it fit? cost?

3) What the HELL is that thing under the plastic cover inside the spare tire???????
