    We haven't started the MH since 24th November and she's been parked in the open. Now the snow's gone went out to start her today, armed with jump leads and the car, expecting a dead battery.
    We've owned her for nearly 3 years and the battery is the one she had when imported from Germany in 2008 - and of unknown age.
    She started literally 1st turn of the key ...

    :Cool:

    Likewise......

    my RV has been stood for around 4 months and been started twice....I dont like starting too often just for the sake of starting unless i intend running it up to temperature.
    the battery is old and dirty but turns over the big V10 engine no problem....last time at minus 6deg.

    Proper job MH, you've not got Deep Thought draining your batteries.
