Default Just A Reminder

Not that anyone here needs to be reminded, but there may be one or two.

After about a week or more of no driving, I usually put on the battery tender just to keep from having battery issues later. If you have a weak or older battery, this may help immensely. I leave it plugged all the time and never shut it down until I'm ready to go for a spin.

I keep my good charger on my mower...
I did keep a trickle charger on my furd truck which I never drive and extended that battery life by 4 or 5 years. I forgot to hook it up over the summer and battery finally went out. It gets the caddy battery when I change it out this winter(and hooked back up to charger).

Didn't know Corvettes were plug-in Hybrids.

I have battery tender Jr's on both my Cub Cadets. Keeps the batteries topped off and makes them last for years instead of a single season.

Hmmmm, I got one, but it doesn't have a trunk.

Gonna go to Walmart, and buy an inexpensive Stanley battery
maintainer ($15.00).
Have one on my motorcycle, and one on my MILs Cadillac.
The do the job well.

Motorcycle has been hooked up but it's time to tether the goat.
No more driving this year it appears.
