It's been a hot summer and I've gotten some use out of the PortaNobby.

I had to get both LP tanks refilled and since my batteries are hidden down below the tanks I thought I'd take a look.
2 - 6V wet batteries were THIRSTY.
Fluid was still covering the top of the plates, but barely.
I added 1.5 litres total between the 2 batteries.

I seem to remember checking them BEFORE last season started.
My bad.

There is a moral to this story.

Thanks for the reminder. It's been hot in our area for a few months and I haven't checked water level for about 6 weeks. Going to do that today on all vehicles including golf cart and UTV.

First of the month...battery check time unless camping, then weekly. Batteries are expensive!
