Default Re: battery drain

Bottom line is you should get that battery replaced. Then you will either use a maintainer or drive for a longer time for each start or this will continue to be the story. The other option is a periodic 16-24 hours on the smart charger and install a combination starting-deep cycle battery. The modern car/truck/boat starting battery will not survive any sustained discharge events or being maintained in a less than full charged state.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
