Inverter Repaired and Returned - All New Batteries Too

Magnum Energy was fantastic. Our inverter was repaired and returned in one week!  Of course, a $200+ overnight shipping charge (each way) made the turnaround time seem shorter.  Under the circumstances, living in the coach, it didn't seem such a wildly extravagant expense.   At any rate, we got word yesterday that it was expected to be delivered by 11 a.m. so we broke camp and made the short 28 mile drive to Camping World on Friday morning, arriving right around lunchtime, of course.  

Wayne has decided to avoid future battery power frustration by simply replacing all six batteries:  Four large ones power the coach ($140 each) and two more support the diesel engine ($135 each).  The charger we bought to keep our batteries powered has indicated our old batteries just aren't what they should be.  Nothing is more frustrating that having dead or dying batteries.  And these are, after all, about four years old now. We bought all six of them and had them installed while the inverter was being reinstalled.

We were cleared to go around 5 p.m. We stayed on for yet another night in the Camping World parking lot.  We plan to pull out by 9 a.m. tomorrow.
