Easy House Battery Replacement

Replacing house batteries and/or cables can be a daunting task, especially if they are wired parallel. To make the job easier, I grabbed my P-Touch label maker and did some labeling. First, I assigned a number to each battery. Going from left to right, I affixed a number label to the side of each battery. Then I placed a label on each battery cable, near the end of each terminal connection. For instance, a cable marked “3-“, would mean that end of the cable goes to the negative terminal of battery #3, and so on. I leave the labels on all the time. P-Touch labels are very resilient and stand up well to grime as well as periodic cleaning.

I’m sure I’m not the first person to think of this, but I thought I’d pass it along.

Good idea. And by the looks of your signature, our wives went to the same driving school.
