More Power Scotty.......

That's a line I know all you Star Trek fans have heard Captain Kirk say at least once!  

We hope your Wednesday is going good.  One of the discoveries we made this weekend, was Pod's battery was pretty much done for.   Rob had wanted to install dual batteries for boon-docking (camping without electric/water hook-ups), plus purchase a Honda Generator for this camping season.  But we just weren't ready for such a major purchase.  So we decided to just replace Pod's single battery with a new one.  

The original battery had been in service nearly 39 months, so it was most likely time for it to fail.  

After a quick trip to the local parts store, Rob was able to verify the lack of life in the old battery, and purchase a new one.  The new battery just happened to be on sale for $12.00 off the original price.  

It only took a few minutes to clean the terminal connectors with a wire brush, re-connect them, and all was good again.  

If you can't tell by the last several posts, we are getting ready for our camping trip to Charleston, SC for Spring Break.  We are slowly marking things off our "to-do" list in preparation for our trip.  

Thanks for checking by today.  Until next time, stay safe out there.....-R,T,&J.
