well “The big rolling turd” is alive.
Picked up the rebuilt ($93) Friday afternoon on my way to camp and got her running again, battery isolator tested good with my multimeter and now both sets of batteries are charging again at 14.9v, time for a test drive, good thing as I was now out of LP and it's beginning to drop below freezing at nights. Looks like its time to winterize.
We don't stop using our rig in the winter just don't come to camp when the temps drop into the teens or below, to hard on everything.
I also continued to remove other abandon wire, some running to the rear bumper, some going only half way back then ending... very odd, do some tire presser/temp sensor systems use a long wire for an antenna? (that reminds me, I need to send mine in for battery replacements).
My engine compartment looks a lot tidier now.
thanks for the help.
I should update my blog.
