    But thats what a 100ah battery can supply? 50ah before serious damage. So not understanding your question?

    11.5V is pretty much very flat.

    5 years is pretty good lifespan.

    Funny how book value/insurance value only seems to work in a negative favour to the owner.

    Are we then saying his best option is to drive it into a tree?

    Is that chimney top not incorrect for wind?

    I imagine that with a strong wind from one side it will push back into the chimney, no top or a swivel one might be better.
