RE: Concorde Batteries

I just replaced my Lifeline group 26 and the darn thing lasted for 7 years and more times than I can count I let it discharge way too far. There was no question about getting another Lifeline.

RE: CB Radio - needed?

I took an old hand held a couple times just for the novelty of it. After a couple miles of hearing nuttin' but nuttin', I turned it off and kept it off.

RE: moisture in tail lights

I have those cheap Barge? light fixtures that just don't seal well. The cases are made of cheap hard plastic and the lenses don't seal because there is no gasket. I drilled a small hole in the bottom of the lense so moisture can escape. Works for me.

RE: What Headlight Restoration Kit?

I use 2000 grit wet/dry sandpaper with a couple drops of dish soap in the water. They come out crystal clear. Been doing it for years on a mess of different vehicles. Spray a little 303 on the lenses when done and they will stay clear longer than you own the vehicle.

"she got a piece of bark or something in her eye." Do you have any "something" in your yard?

RE: Battery minder

No need to unhook cables but contrary to popular belief the Battery Tenders nor the Battery Minder are completely set and forget. While they are charging, the cases get warm/hot which by itself isn't a problem. I just wouldn't leave a battery hooked up for a very long term without being around to check on it from time to time.

RE: Gaudy colored and striped RV's

I'm right with you. Those gaudy lookin' rigs scream out, "look at me"!!! There's no accounting for taste.

RE: Battery

Do you have a battery cut off switch and if so, is the switch closed? Another thought: Is your battery healthy, or is it dead? If unsure, have it checked at any auto parts store.

Just shout it out if you know.

RE: Propane Tank After Fill Up

If the person that filled your tank did not open the screw, then it is possible that a little too much propane was added. Reopen that screw with all gas appliances off and bleed out a little more. It should be fine after that.

RE: Wind

We lived in the Heber/Overgaard area and YES it gets cold and YES there can be a lot of snow. Feb. 2007 we got 48" of snow in a single dumping. The town was shut down for days!!!!!

RE: Highway 77 in Arizona - recommended for a 39' motorhome?

I moved from that area 4 years ago. You will be fine! Although it's only 2 lanes, it is a good road. Watch out for windy conditions. Many rigs have been blown over on 77 and 277.

RE: It's time for a new house battery

Thanks BFL! This is what I needed to know. Yes, I leave my tender connected to the chassis battery and that one lasted 6 years before replacing so I believe it was doing its job in maintaining a healthy charge. I doubt my little solar panel has any controller at all and it is only supplying power to the house bat. I will install a new house battery and keep doing what I always was in keeping the rig plugged in a home. I rarely if ever hear my converter run when plugged in so I suspect the solar is keeping the bat healthy.

RE: It's time for a new house battery

OP here. Plz let me explain further. My rig is parked at home so I can keep it plugged in. I have no knowledge of what type of charge controller it has. It is an ex Cruise America rental. I am not wanting to increase my solar capacity because what I now have + keeping it plugged in when wanted has kept this battery in working condition for 7 years, which is probably far longer than most. Back to the original question: Should I install a new battery even though I won't be using the rig for awhile or leave it on the bench till I need it AND if so, do I leave my battery minder on it or just let it sit
