    Got my sign led change out finished this am. Wasn't very pleasant in bucket truck but it's done. Fog covered the mountain. I grew up in this area and all used to be fruit orchards. Rode dirt bikes, hunted, swam in the ponds, just was an awesome place to grow up. I paused for several minutes up in the air just reminiscing. Just an old softie I guess....

    I have 1 in the Tacoma and 1 in the Rav4.
    I've had them since 11/18
    Only had to use it on the riding lawn mower.
    Easy to use and if you hook it up backwards it won't work and fry out anything out.

    Morning all! I was going to sit on my ass all day and veg, but I just remembered I have ~5 in inches of snow to remove from everywhere. I guess it's time to fire the MF up and push some snow around. I just have to decide whether to change out of jammies or not.

    Oh, and no recommendation on a jump box. Only ever used one once.. or twice?

    The kids car (2014 xterra) will drain the battery to where it won’t start in about 2 weeks of sitting. There’s something with a slow drain. Tried to find it but gave up - I hate automotive electrical work more than squeezing my hand between the fan and radiator. @Tacoma Mike - you understand that reference. Radiators are like serrated knives just waiting for flesh... I have to make an appointment to drop it off at the auto electrical shop. This pig has 3 fuse blocks!

    I also have the GB40 for the car/truck and a GB20 for motorcycles. The smaller clamps work better if your battery terminals are in an awkward position.

    In that case, he needs to plug into a battery tender while it sits. I have optima batteries on a dual system and leave the back one plugged in and the system keeps both charged. I use an optima charger.
    If you only have one battery, any smart charger will work.

    Edit- sorry, you are talking to Mike and I am chiming in.

    Thank you Mike

    I have the same one. Haven't had to use it but after after 2 years the battery still holds a charge. I too it off every 3 or 4 months just in case.
