I first want to check the solenoid that disconnects the batteries but do not know where its located. Also, any ideas of the problem? Planning a trip in a few days.
Some batteries come with a plastic cover over the Positive terminal. It is very, very hard to see and is thin enough to allow the battery caable to be slipped over for connection. Of course, this cover is a near perfect insulator and keeps the batteries isolated!
Now, I will NOT allow anyone thes reflector to ask just how I, who has been in the electronics business for 50+ years and sport a BS-Physics, to know about this very, very subtle trap!
