Went to check on the rig (in storage, plugged in) and found no power.
Culprit is the TDI manual power cord reel. It is intermittent on one power leg. If you move the reel slightly you can see that leg phase in/out on the surge protector. Unfortunately, the loss of pwer for an extended eriod (possibly up to a week) has caused the batteries to run down :-(. FYI - I had (notice the past tense NOW) been leaving the inverter on but could not leave the auto gen start on as it is in enclosed storage.
2 years ago we had the exact same failure and TDI did a free swap out. When I called them about this I found out that they have been acquired by TRC and now I'm waiting to hear back from them.
Even if they offer another swap I'm concerned that the problem is due to an inherent design problem in the mechanism.
Anyone have a recommendation for a replacement reel source?
