Im laughing, but at myself! - I just dropped off my Fiberstream to get the wheel bearings packed, which by the way I didnt know what bearings were- but the mechanic says: just back it in bay #3. I told him Im still learning my backing up skills. So they do it for me and disappear. I had to find the mechanic to un hook the trailer!- the trailer has an electric lift, but i guess the battery isnt charged to do it. So they had to help with that too. (Cyndi hitting her head against the wall.). I am, however getting a backing up lesson next week from my trucker friend! Id love to be able to back my trailer up dead on a target!!!

Cindy, you may want to plug the trailer in and charge up the battery. Once you have the battery charged up let it sit for a couple of hours and then plug in the battery monitor (you can get one that will do the job for you for under $12) and see what it reads. If it doesn't show its fully charged it means the battery is no longer holding a charge due to its condition or age. If its shows its fully charge you should turn on a light - if the battery monitor shows its dropping fast again thats a good indicator the battery isnt working as well as it should be. It is not uncommon for a battery of more than 4 years of age that hasnt been really well taken care of to need replacing. I have been told that every time a battery is allowed to go below 40% of its charged state it shortens the life of the battery. Some suggest it actually only needs to happen 4 times to seriously impact the batteries life. Costco has good prices on batteries.
