Re: Is it the charger or the batteries that are failing??

The answer to a complex problem is usually the simplest, right? I've been stumped by this problem since August -- is it the charger that is broken? why are the batteries not holding a charge? did my kids bust the motor when they were dumping their camp and college stuff in the garage? Which of the three components (battery, motor, charger) was the weak link? Or, which oneS??

The answer is --- -- ya gotta make sure that you have water in the battery!!!! You can't make electricity if the battery is dry!! I think I was completely drained of water in my two deep cycle batteries -- now I'm wondering what damage I've done to them by it being dry for months and also trying to charge them at the same time....

Anyway -- I think the problem is solved...
