Got my batteries home now, in the garage, charging...set the thing on maintenance....guess everything is OK....did what was advised about the parallel stuff...have used my jumper cables to connect everything . Will get shorter cables tomorrow.
I don't understand why the driver's side battery is so "dirty". The mucker seems to exude nasty white stuff (and it stings)
acid I think. What is going on there? What should I do diff? I understand cleaning up with baking soda, but where is this stuff coming from. It has spoiled the looks of my door (driver's side only) of the battery compartment and the fake chrome below it.
