:cool:Just purchased a new RSX 850i Trail model several weeks ago and have a few questions can someone tell me where the battery is located and how to get to it? The driver’s seat rises up but the passenger seat will not. Is there a different release for the passenger seat? Other than these minor issues it’s a great machine. One more question about the 850i, the owner’s manual recommends John Deere 0 – 40w oil however my dealer said I should use 15 -40w after the first oil change. Is my dealer correct in telling me this?

There is a latch under the passenger seat that is a real PITA. The battery is under it but I think you have to remove the side panel to get to it. Here's a pick showing the panel removed. I'm using the oil the owners manual recommends.

Welcome to the forum Gatorgent!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I believe in following what the manual says, but the dealer might be saying that cause of where you live. I would follow the manual and if something happens, its deere's fault, not yours.
