Smile deep cycle battery

Well, after almost six years, I had to replace the battery on my Scamp 13. Through the years, I have taken the Scamp for a short "trip" just to keep the battery charged. I feel that it keeps everything in running order. The battery keeps charged, the hitch ball gets a little grease on it and the wheel bearings get to turn to keep them from freezing during the winter. All in all, my plan for taking the trailer for a short, about 100 mile ride every 6-8 weeks was sufficient to keep the original bettery in good shape until this fall, when the battery would not keep a charge. As long as the trailer was attached to the tow rig everything was fine of course, but disconnect the trailer and everything was dead and I did not want to run the risk of running the tow vehicle battery down, sooooo, an investment in a new deep cycle marine battery was in order. Right at $100, but I feel a good investment. Marg
