OH...so what have we done about it? We disconnected the primary battery
and now the system is running off the secondary (good) battery
. Only the winch remains connected to the dead battery
, but since we have to go LOOKING for trouble (ie. snow, mud, rocks) here in California, it's safe to say I won't need a winch anytime soon.
We'll replace the battery, then Dad, the electrical
engineer and designer of this system, will walk me through the system while he tests it all out. You bet I'll be writing it all down so I'll know what's what in case he's not available next time something like this comes down. (Or for the next person who acquires this vehicle should it ever change hands.)
