Well if Cari ever gives you the cold shoulder hot water bottles are great foot warmers as well.

That is why I went with the golf cart batteries, 110 ah. Of course they are not AGM so you have to put them outside.

Even the AGM's need to be vented to the outside, or be outside. This is one of the issues all of the ParkLiner owners till I guess this month are experiencing.

Hello everyone this is Aaron from Parkliner and I would like to clarify on the shore power hook up. The furnace will work with without shore power it is a gas appliance. The A/C , Microwave, and 110v outlets will NOT work with out shore power. The fridge and water heater does not require shore power either. Sorry for any confusion.

Not all ParkLiner owners are haveing this Battery issue.But the batteries have been moved outside. If the blue top batteries are run all the way dead and charged to fast they will over heat. I know because I did it to one sitting outside hooked up to a charger

Working on it but we have stopped installing Optima batteries because of all the charging issues with them. But I will post with weight change as soon as it is set in stone.

Thanks Aaron....I might have to pull mine out and sit them up front just to check it. It probably is a better plan with them up front on the tongue...I might need to add more weight out back to balance it. My Rav4 has a max tongue weight of 350lbs. Don't want to overload it lol

Aaron, if ParkLiner is not installing Optima batteries anymore, what are you using now?

Thanks!

Frank
