It's been a while! I can't remember the last time I got on this forum, y'all been busy! Today I got after the battery to hook up a tender and I gotta say, I hated every minute of it. I forgot how many panels are actually on this thing, I want to say I pulled of somewhere between four and six pieces of various sizes before I even got to the battery posts. I don't know if it's over engineered or just not engineered at all. Happy February e'rbody, keep those batteries charged...
