You can easily test the battery connect by listening for a "click" when you hit the switch (this is the solenoid closing) and looking at the voltage meter on the dash...it should go up slightly.
I really appreciate that. Amazing how it's usually the simple stuff one overlooks - at least that's usually true in my case

, we're going to test this. It's probably working just like everything else I've been testing lately. Off the subject, but I took the time to "properly" calibrate my monitor panel read-outs yesterday. I had thought the fresh water tank monitor didn't even work, and the others were all way off. Turns out they ALL work, but were terribly mis-calibrated
