RE: Solar panel

While measuring volts may give you an indication it is doing something, it could well be delivering charge current with almost no increase in voltage. In order to know if it is doing anything useful, you need to measure the current from the panel. A clamp on amp meter is the best way to see what it is really delivering. Clamp it on the positive lead coming from the panel.

RE: How to keep a TC from being stolen when not on the truck?

I'd be curious to see a reference to this ever happening. I'd wager most thieves would not even know how to load it, let alone have a truck to carry it. There are far easier things to steal.

RE: Help - jacks are draining my batteries

Check fluid levels in the batteries.

RE: Batteries died...sheesh

So if you spend $225 +/- on new batteries and they lasts 5 years, if you spend $700 (3 times as much) on li batteries will they last 15 years (3 times longer) - or be 3 times better? Yes! in fact more than 3 times longer and better in other ways too. Expect to get 20 years out of them based on charge discharge cycles. Also you can draw them down all the way without damage, so they have effectively double the usable power for the same amp-hour capacity, and they weigh about 1/3 of lead acid. Over life they are far cheaper than lead acid - you just pay more up front.
