RE: Battery Cable Corrosion

I've had the MH plugged into 50amp at my house since mid Dec. Do you think this might be why I have corrosion on the main positive cable, but not on the battery terminal?

RE: Battery Cable Corrosion

Yep, that's it.

RE: Battery Cable Corrosion

What do you think about me cutting off the corroded part of the cable and reattaching it to the clamp?

RE: Battery Cable Corrosion

Simple. Some acid got in the connection. You can clean it up or just replace it. Use heat shrink to seal the insulation to the lug. Otherwise a picture might help. http://photoposting.is-great.net/?i=1 https://i.imgur.com/hKLt6Nql.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. See how the corrosion is actually on the battery cable and not the terminal. This cable looks like it is the main one coming to the batteries. Should I try to clean it and then put some vaseline on it or replace it. Not sure where it is connected on the other end.

Battery Cable Corrosion

My hot lead to my 6v batteries (1 of 4) has battery corrosion on the wire just before the hook up clamp. This is the primary positive cable that supports the 4 Duracell GC2 Golf Cart Batteries. Any thoughts as to why this happened? I have the system that replaces the battery cell caps so I can fill my batteries by pumping water into the batteries, anyone remember the name of that system? I need to replace the pump that transfers the water from the container through one of the hoses . This has been installed since 2005 and I have never had any corrosion on my batteries or the cables before now.

Duracell Golf Cart Batteries GC 2

I have a 2001 National Tradewinds and have been using GC 2 Duracell batteries for years. My current ones are 4 years old and I'm thinking of replacing them. When I pulled them up on line at Sam's club The ratings were like 2. What 6 volt batteries are you all using, I need 4. There is no Sam's Club in Saint George Utah.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

A couple of thoughts regarding Cookie: Is this a real seizure or a syncopal attack (fainting) due to the heart condition? If it is only heart related, changing/adding heart meds may be useful, but in the long run this condition won't be reversed. It's kind of unusual for seizures to develop this late in life unless there is another health issue causing the seizure (tumors or metabolic issues). Regardless, a syncopal attack or seizure is usually not painful to the dog. As Dale said, they can be extremely fatiguing and post event most dogs do feel wiped out. Regarding end of life issues, most times the dogs themselves will tell you when they have had enough. Just be tuned in to behavior and be sensitive to Cookie's needs. You both need to come to agreement on final arrangements. The service we use offer a cremation and have an option where an amulet filled with the ashes along with the rest of the remains are provided. Most people who do this bury the remains but keep the amulet someplace special where there isn't a constant reminder. Just an option. What she does when this happens is she lays on her side all stretched out with her legs also stretched out and she shakes and howls really loud, she also passes urine. It doesn't last more then 20-30 seconds. Then she will just lay there for a few mins before she gets up very slowly. Since these last two on Thursday nite and early Friday morning there has been no more. But she does walk very slow and her rear right leg is not moving normally. Even though she weighed in at 13.3 lbs she feels and looks like only skin and bones. She also looks like she is shaking a lot. She won't eat her regular food Hills Science Diet 7+ kibble, so we cooked her some chicken breast with no additives and she has no problem eating that. I just don't know if she is in pain. She does sleep all day and night. Her water drinking is still like it has always been and she comes and goes through the doggie door to use the bathroom. I just hate to put her down if it's not time.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I need some advise. My 16 year old Shih Tzu Cookie was having seizures a few months ago so I took her to the Vet. She was prescribed some meds, Pimobendan and Furosemide which stopped the seizures until last Thursday evening when she had another seizure, it didn't last as long as the previous ones. Friday morning before I could call our Vet she fell over on her side and had another one and this time she also peed. I called the Vet and took her right in where she was examined, had blood work and Xrays. Her heart was enlarged which started a few years ago and she takes Enalapril twice a day for that. The Xrays show that her Kidney is also enlarging and her Liver is also enlarging. For this she is now taking Denamarin 1/4 tab once a day. The Vet says she may have Liver Cancer starting also. Her Furosemide was reduced to only 1/2 pill a day. Here's my questions, I don't think she is in pain but she is slow moving and sleeps all day. I don't want her to suffer, should I have her put down now or just wait until I can see if she is in pain and then have it done. When I do this I am thinking of cremation and having her Urn in my living room, but my Wife doesn't want that as it would bother her to see it every day. I could have her ashes placed with other pets and disbursed in an Orchard. I don't know what to do when the time comes, keep the Urn or let them disburse her ashes? I have never been this close to any of the pets I've had over the years. What would you all do?

I can't believe my MH has been sitting since early Dec.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Richard, have you and Sue thought of a Class C motor home? My neighbors flew up to Seattle and purchased a 2 year old 22 foot class c with a diesel engine in it and they really love it. His wife drives it with no problem and it even has a long slide that gives them plenty of room when parked. The bed is in the back so no climbing up over the front seats to sleep. When they get back from a week end trip I'll get the make and model so you can pull it up and look it over. The engine is a mercedes diesel(?) Do you think Sue would drive one if it was small enough?

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I hope the grand opening ceremony for the animal shelter includes some pictures of the Old Fella statue and all the bricks. That would be really neat :C So would the picture of Old Fella looking up at Richard. That picture says it all.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

When they honor you at the opening of the new place they need to post a HUGE picture of you and Old Fella in the lobby. The picture of you with him looking at you with those eyes says it all. It would be awesome.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Sorry to hear the restrictions that this illness is causing you. Does the no driving apply for the future or just for a while? I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Thank God he got you through this.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Richard, so sorry about your son in law. I'm sure it was a difficult decision to not go, especially with your current problem of the tiredness and sleeping in late. Let us know what the Doc says after the blood work is looked at. I've got the same thing going on but also no appetite and a feeling of fullness after eating a few bites. Will be setting up an appointment with my Doc if it persists. I go to bed around 10:30pm and don't get out of bed until 9:30-10:00 am. And I walk each evening for a little over a mile, giving out milk bones to my doggie friends in the neighborhood. There is one, Struts, a pointer who sees me coming a block away. He gets two each time unless I miss a day. Then he moans and barks until I give him a third one. Funny dog, if I don't miss a day he will go lay down by the front door in the shade after his two, but miss a day and two won't work until he gets one more to make up for the missed day. Then there is Maggie an old Golden Retreiver, she has a huge lump on her back just in front of her tail. She has a hard time getting up and walking. The Vet won't operate because of her age. But when she sees me she jumps up and runs to me like a young dog to get her treat. She sits and chews her treat a lot slower then most dogs, enjoying every bite. She is such a good girl her owner, Pam, lets her out front with no fence and she will not go past the grass. Enough for now, everyone stay safe and Richard I'm hoping your blood work comes back clear.

Richard, you don't have to give up biking if you like it, just look for a 3 wheeler, there are some nice ones out there. Or you could always add training wheels. Just Kidding, SORRY, couldn't help myself.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Weather has been really odd this year. We are enjoying 70's this week in Saint George, Utah while my children, grand kids and great grand kids are having cold weather in the Salt Lake City area. Also they had a 5.8 earthquake a few weeks ago and are still getting aftershocks in the 4.2 range. They had that yesterday and just had one a few minutes ago. My one 8 year old GGD told her mom and Dad that she wants to move. They live about 2 miles from the main quake and aftershock centers.

Happy Easter to everyone. Found out the other day one of my Grand Daughters tested positive and so did her Husband. Their symptoms did not include a fever or hard breathing. You all be careful.
