Deep Cycle Batteries and Generators.....Oh My!

Thank you everyone for a fun filled weekend of Boondocking.
We gained some more knowledge about the capabilities of our Airstream.

I appreciated the assistance with charging my batteries to get us through those chilly nights.
When I got home, I put each 12 volt Interstate battery on a smart charger and discovered one of them had failed, which explains why they kept draining down so quickly. Now I need to decide on whether to tow the AS to Bill Thomas in Wentzville for warranty replacement or just buy a new battery here locally and save the time and fuel. [Me thinks I'll be shopping locally]

Hope to see you all again......."down the road" .

Cheers

Eric,

If you are sure the batteries themselves are bad, try going to a local Interstate dealer. The batteries used to have a 2 year warranty, but that was changed to 1 year, they can check them out and replace if you show when you bought your trailer.

If you go to Bill Thomas, they can check and verify that the charging system in the trailer is functional. If it's not, then they can replace the charging system and batteries at the same time.

I'll check in to it in January. Everyone want to stick with Bennitt SP or do we want to look around at other parks?

OK, gang, I've been working on trying to get a date settled for a spring Boondock at Bennitt Lake. Was trying to get memorial day weekend, and we can do that, but MDC says absolutely no camping on the grass that weekend due to high visual exposure to the public. The only other weekends I can host are May 8-10 or June 6-8, we can camp on the grass as usual those dates. Thoughts? Permit's not a problem either way, just the grass issue and higher traffic over Memorial Day weekend. Also, she mentioned they would be reworking the new gravel pads by the lake in April, so the area is likely to still be torn up and soft. Let me know if any of these dates work and I'll secure the paperwork.

I've been looking forward to this one.

May 8th the average high temperature is about 74. June 6th may be a bit sticky at 82. I'm good with either.

We missed 2014, but certainly enjoyed the previous one. Our vote would be for May8-10.
