RE: storage tips for keeping batteries in good shape ????

I just ordered two new house batteries. Will pick them up tomorrow and install them. Also going to get me a battery tender to use on them. Thanks for all of the input, lesson well learned. My batteries are 6 yrs old, normally that's old for an auto battery but not sure if that is good or bad for a house battery. Can someone tell me what the avg life span is on a 6volt 235Ah battery ?

RE: Winegard Road Trip SDI in motion satellite problems

the receiver is a standard home receiver I use in my garage. I move it to the RV whenever we travel. It still works fine in the garage, but will not pick up anything in the RV. And it is a Directv system.

Winegard Road Trip SDI in motion satellite problems

I have an 07 Coachmen Cross Country with the In motion Winegard Road Trip SDI system. Last trip out everything worked fine, getting it ready head out for tailgating season and the system will not pick up any signals. The receiver works fine in the house, but take it out to the rv and it gets nothing. have tried several times to get it to work. You can hear the lnb turning in the dome and it stops like it is picking up signal and then moves on but it never picks up anything. I'm thinking the lnb may have went out, but that's just my guess. not sure what else to check. Hope someone can give me some leads as to what may be wrong, Any info is greatly appreciated.

storage tips for keeping batteries in good shape ????

I have owned two motorhomes over the last 14 yrs. !st was a gasser, 2nd a diesel pusher. My questions are this, 1) do you keep it plugged up when not in use ? mine is garage kept at home and I always have left it plugged in. Are my batteries getting overcharged by doing this ? 2) what is the preferred method of storing one when not in use ? 3) does anyone have knowledge on the in motion satellite system ? I think mine has an lnb that has went out on it. Just wondering if I can buy a new lnb for it. 4) when storing one for long periods of time (months) and plugged up, do you keep the inverter on or off ? I thought I knew how to do all of this, but apparently not. My batteries were dry as a bone but still held a 6.67 volt charge. I refilled the batteries with acid. Just wondering what I am doing wrong or right. Any info is greatly appreciated.
