That's for people who don't like to take their shoes off. Shoes keep their tootsies warm.

They just use a leaf blower for cleaning rather than vacuuming.

Geez, my batteries are a little pregnant too. I was going to replace them while we were south but they still seem to be holding a charge, for a while anyway. I didn't find a better price than here so I am still limping on my old ones. Don't fix till broken I guess.

Speaking of house batteries, I have two twelves and two sixes, all hooked up in parallel except the sixes are also in series. I get a good three days without having to run the genset while wallydocking but I was told by a battery guy who was testing them, that this wasn't the smartest thing to do. He made some claim about them bleeding power from one another and thereby shortening their lives. What say youse guys.

I would have to agree with the diagnostics. Shouldn't mix 6's and 12's in any configuration.

I put in (4) 6 volt 205 AH batteries taxes in for the $615. So total, in series, I have 410 AH. Good enough for a couple of overnights. I have solar and Genny anyways if not. I won't be doin Quartzite anytime soon so I ain't worried about extreme boon docking.

Get a bank selector from Harbor Freight and rewire so that you can separate the battery banks and you'll be good .
