You read my mind Unckl.
If I had enough time to be extremely leisurely about this and asked all the right questions I'm sure I'd s#rew it up

Update. Day two and new batteries are at 100%.

Sad news. I brought the two dead batteries indoors. My fancy CTEK managed to recover one of the AGMs last night and it reads 13.18 this morning. Waiting on the second battery.

There might be a fire sale in MD. Just sayin'.

Hi

Keep in mind that the "renew your battery" process is not a lot different than putting a can of stuff in the engine to keep it from burning oil. It's a fine way to get a bit more life out of a nearly dead item. It very much does *not* return it to "like new" condition.

Of course if you can come across enough free batteries ... they can't all be nearly dead ....
