Caged up, exploded camper battery, clouds racing by.

And bullshitting about said exploded battery, and drinking Dos, and chasing a wiring Gremlin, and getting pissed, and all in a minute forty nine.
And all from the beautiful view in DS's back yard!
Enjoy!

I love this time lapse stuff  ;D

I would think the other crap in batteries would keep water from freezing.  But??

Battery in my rail, 1yr old Braile, split the plastic case.  But least crap didnt go everywhere.  Thinking internal short, or the exposed wiring I found.

Discharged battery can readily freeze.

Those time laps are cool.  It looks like the snow finally melted up there.  And you guys do work fast, did you find the gremlin?  And like fabr said, a dead battery turns to water.  Now get get that buggy painted, time is ticking by, 6 weeks!!

Camper battery replaced, I do think it discharged and froze up. It did have some corrosion around the posts just on that battery in the array, soooooo..  ?

On an even happier note, the gremlin has been terminated! All from a bad switch. Got lots of other items cleaned up in the harness while I was tracking it down, so all for the better  :D
Cage is rebuilt and painted up! Many thanks to DS for knocking it out as fast as he did, saved me lots of time to concentrate on many other items that needed checked on from the wreck. Tabed in a light bar on the roof, found thee guys a while back and has worked out very well. Bang for the buck, you can't go wrong.. http://extremeledlightbars.com/

Lots to check off the list yet, but getting closer!
