replace Univolt or just needs charge

OK, my Tradwind has the original Univolt. It seems to be doing ok, no noise, but. Today I worked on her, and was not hooked up to electric (none on since fall (Nov)) I put a CD in the player and it worked a while, then as soon as I turned on a light, it stopped/started/ stopped. Replacing it is on the list, but do you think it's because it has not been charged in 4 months? The battery is just over 1 year old. I will test the battery and charge it if needs it. The CD player did cut out some last year as well when many lights are on. I guess I know the answer just looking for confirmation. John

I would bet first your battery is discharged, but an original univolt that old should not be trusted.

I would check the voltage, then plug in to shore power, and check the voltage again. That will be quick checks of the battery and the univolt.
