Thank you!!

When I checked out the Bounder the engine cranked right up but the house batteries were dead. This coach had less than 3,000 miles on it and was 3 years old. Dealer said "we will charge um right up". I asked him to show them to me. They pulled the top step and there sat two of the cleanest Trojen 6V batteries you ever, with bulges on all sides. I popped the capps and they were bone dry. Bottom line the dealer knocked off $300 for batteries and I replaced them myself from the local golf cart shop. Get the dealer to knock off a few hundred and replace them yourself with what you want.
