    The Once And For All On Batteries...

    I was watching the 4 New Batteries I just put in. Found that one 12 volt was dropping and not the other? It was not tied into the other 12 v. Charged all 4 at 24 volts they did not charge equal for me. To get them all floated even I had to do one at a time at 12v. The 12 v part is going down...

    Annual Maintenance Costs of LMTV

    I seem to get chains longer then needed when bought and just trim the ends? I don't like tails of loose chain to catch stuff. They were sized for grader tires and 395/85 20's. Made in China I guess? I got a discount cause the cheaper ones were gone. $400.00 off on the 4 of them.
