I skipped out of work a little early this afternoon to take advantage of the 87 degree weather and cloud cover to remove all of our rig's batteries and take them to SAM's Club to be checked out.
SAM's was very busy and short handed as usual, so I had to wait almost an hour to get things taken care of. The starting battery was shot and was a quick $100 purchase and I just missed the 12-month free replacement period, by less than 1 month, so the service manager gave me the good news that I had 67 percent of the battery's value in proration, so it only cost me a mere $25.70 per battery, rather than being free, sounds like a good deal, huh?
So all three batteries have been installed and all appears to be working well. I used a little anti corrosion spray, which is red, and should keep the connections clean. The house lights are much brighter and Iris turns right over with a roar. All is good and we are one step closer to being ready for our first weekend away.
