Blinking Batteries!
I know I am in the wrong! The last time I checked the battery electrolyte level was in Cairns four months ago and guess what they are in bad need of topping up. first job this morning was to top up all the domestic batteries. They had begun to loose voltage. I know I should have checked them monthly! But they required no fluid until Cairns and suddenly they loose a lot. Weekly checks for this month now, until I can trust they have let me down. We started the engine and charged for three hours, fingers crossed, they seem ok at present.
