We think the main power switch was accidently turned off, as that red light on makes you think it's something you should turn off when you are shutting everything down for a few weeks...so a newbie error here and hopefully the fix, as this Bambi equipped with the solar system should be good to go for close to a week with this set up, according to earlier postings on these batteries.
Also the manual says to add water to the batteries occasionally, however these are different batteries which clearly state not to add water, so this a wierd issue and one we need to learn more about!
BTW, we cancelled this weekend till we're sure all bugs out of the Bambi, and also Dan said if we go he'd pitch a tent outside
We've had many laughs over this....all part of the AS fun
