Anne & Bob:

After I had my "aha" moment and found those running board lights on at night, I have not had a problem.  If you turn that dial switch down to nothing then the running board lights stay on about 5 seconds.  I have found that I can leave the mh stored in the garage all summer without a start problem.  In the winter, it is a different story.  I can go about 6 weeks before she won't start. The colder weather makes the batteries die faster.   One last thing to do is check to see if you have a dead cell in your battery with the tester.  With the crappy batteries being made today (in China) they tend to have quality control issues.

Happy camping.

Phoenix switched to Trojan batteries as far as I know. They are made in USA.
