Venting Battery into vent pipe for holding tank

Venting Battery into vent pipe for holding tank
I'm adding a 12v system to my trailer. It didn't come with one. The battery compartment will be under a front seat above the black water holding tank. I'd prefer the battery outside but there is absolutely no room outside on the tongue for a battery.

The vent for the black water holding tank goes right past where I plan to install the vented battery box.

Can I vent the battery box into the vent pipe for the black water tank? I don't want to cut another hole in the side of the trailer?

Anybody know if there would be a problem. The hydrogen gas the battery might produce is flammable. The gasses the holding tank might produce are also flammable?
