Well, I fried my battery - at least, it's not holding a charge and when I look inside, there is no water to be seen (from the outside there may be some near the bottom third of the battery).
I'm assuming that this happened because I kept it on the trailer and plugged to AC all winter so I could have a heater on inside during our long really cold spell. (Long story) and never checked the battery water levels. And it is 5 years old.
So . . .
Does anyone have any advice on buying a new one? Just a quality deep cycle battery with about the same specs? Costco? RV place?
How about over-wintering? When I mend my ways, and disconnect the battery for the winter, I assume that I should bring it into the garage or the basement? And how should I keep it charged over the winter - do folks get a separate battery charger? A full charger like AAA uses? or a trickle charger? Seems like a lot of work to hook it back up to the trailer to charge.
Anyway, I'm clueless in Portland
