If AS dealers are letting batteries die on the lot they are doing a huge disservice to Interstate making them liable for warranty.
Way back in high school I worked at a yamaha motorcycle shop, batteries were shipped dry and when a new bike sold we filled them with electrolite and charged before installing in the bike for the new owner.

Hi

If you have one battery die, it didn't do anything good to the other battery ... you aren't going to get Interstate to swap out the other one, but it still is a risk. In order to work well in parallel, the batteries need to be as close to identical as possible ....

I didn't see this, so I'll ask. When you plug in to shore power, are you setting the Use/Store to Use during the charging? If you keep the switch in Store, the batteries won't charge...just a thought.

Thanks Rich,

On my trailer (2018) the batteries still charge in Store. The big issue I had was rapidly depleting charge, not charging in the first place. I have replaced the bad battery and so far everything is happy!

Thanks,
