  1. First, the facts: engine starts right up, so long as it turns over. It will start when barely turning over, even after an attempt when it doesn’t turn over, so this is not an engine issue batteries (4) are whatever the seller had laying around, 925, 650, 950, 825 A two batteries showed bad with cheapo tester at rated amps, but showed good at 750a my tester would not test one battery, would just restart the menu when attempted Truck starts after sitting in shop on charger charger says all batteries are 97% individually, and 87% when connected to all truck doesn’t like to start after sitting out for several days not connected, cranks slowly or not at all replaced voltage regulator, get 14 v when driving now starts ok after driving my conclusions: i have a drain somewhere- i can fix that, or disconnect batteries batteries are not great best case would just be to buy all new batteries, or better yet, all new truck, but would prefer to understand the issues at play here my questions will batteries work ok in a group if they are different ratings? will a higher amp not great battery pull the others down even if it tests ok at lower amperage ? what kind of amps do i need for a s60 12.7 to start? Thank you for your patience and assistance.
  2. I've been running 6 Trojan 105s off my solar system and original setup. They have been seriously discharged a few times but seem to be ok now. My question is this: how can I determine the life I can expect is remaining in this battery bank?
  3. I have this question about keeping my fifth wheel batteries charged. We will be away for 9 weeks this summer - May and June, and 1 week in July. I will be leaving my fifth wheel in the Tucson area. I am concerned about keeping the batteries charged while gone. I was thinking about keeping the rig plugged into the pedestal (I have a surge guard). My other options would be to use a battery tender. Someone also mentioned using a battery trickle charger. If we went the battery tender/battery trickle charge method, would we need two battery chargers – one for each battery? Finally, is it even necessary to worry about keeping the batteries charged? We have a battery kill switch, just fyi. FYI, we have two Group 29 wet-cell batteries. Thoughts? Suggestions? Pros and Cons of each option? * Right now, we are concentrating on the batteries and know there are more things to do when temporarily storing the fifth wheel. I’ll make a separate post to get that feedback.
  4. I contacted Battle Born and asked them how to properly store their batteries for winter as I may not be using my Travel Trailer until Spring. It couldn’t be any easier! Take a look.
