I'm happy to report there were NO critters wandering the hills and valleys of my back yard last night. Maybe, just MAYBE, I have stayed the land rush for free diggings. No doubt it's only temporary, so I'm not holding my breath.
I do have another problem however, that I'm sure my RV friends can help me with. This is a picture of the two batteries in my rig. I read you are supposed to check the water in them about once a month. That part I completely forgot about until yesterday.
First off, what's up with all the covers and exhaust tubes? For how many years have we all had batteries UNCOVERED in our vehicles WITHOUT all this nonsense? I finally decided to tackle removing them for the check.
Here's my problem. The screw has a square hole in the head. That of course means not one of the 25 screwdrivers I have will work to remove the covers. Take another close look. The red and black wires between the two boxes keep the box on the right completely encased with no chance of removal. So how do you check the water if you cannot remove the case?
I tried everything in my toolbox (I really do have lots of tools) and nothing worked. I suppose today will be a trip to Harbor Freight to find one of those specialty screwdrivers.
Here's my big question. Can't I just throw all this stuff out? Do I really need all this nonsense? Truly, I'm not worried about the batteries exploding. After a year or two, I'll replace them with AGM's anyway. The less maintenance there is that I'm sure to forget to do, the better!!
Today's objective ... put together the little red cart from Harbor Freight that's going to hold my hitch so I don't have to lift it up from the floor. We shall see how that goes. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
