So now I have a few more questions. I hope it is ok to keep asking!
1 I have been charging the battery
with a 1 amp trickle charger for the past 2 days off and on. When I disconnect the batt I usually read 13.1 volts, then letting it sit overnight it is down to 12.7v , will check it again tomorrow morning. If it drops again I think I will take it back. 2 yr no questions warranty.
2 with new 70 lb batt and 2 full 20lb propane
tanks that is 70 + 70 = 140 pounds of tongue weight
....probably at least 25lbs over what would be normal ...I wonder if any noticeable handling difference (towing) , and so much for the easy lift and spin routine in the bush!
3 I like the sound of those solar panel
kits , but , I really want to have a digital or old school meter of the "live" battery
volts/ amps, the trailer supply place did not have one. These kind of battery
health indicators do not seem to be included with your basic charge controllers and panel kit. I have figured that a 40w panel will service our demands well. Anyone know a cheap, helpful, basic battery meter?
As always, thank you very much!
