"I have a 1974 Chevy C20 vintage pick up truck. It had been sitting for about 5 years also. It is one of my three project trucks that is ALMOST done. Going to use it to tow my vintage trailer. Anyway, I also just put in a new battery, sprayed a ounce…"

"Thanks Rich,  Yes after I read the reviews on the Techtron, I knew that I had to get some! I surely thought that the MH had corn gas in it, but apparently it didn't. And yes again to me geting some Zink additive for it also, I had put…"

"If you ever happen across one online with the truck chassis (as opposed to the van) I'd love if you shared the link.  People have seen ones like mine but I have yet to! My owners manual is not even my model (facepalm)."

"I've seen a Mallard or two on PPL for sale, seemed like Very nice MH's, I like the ideal of having a smaller unit because they are easier to manuver and can park almost anywhere. I hope yours comes together just right for you.  Yes,…"

"Well that's alright then!  You know, you got me to thinking - maybe I should see if I can fit two batteries in that engine space where the one house is now.  There's a lot of room in there...although it would require figuring…"

"Well I did discover that I probably mistook the house battery for the start battery, standing in front of the MH, the battery on the left side runs to a starter solenoid. SO, all of the info shared is still relevant because I had charged the other…"

"Haha Ralph.  Not a single switch.  Yeah, when we got it, compared to what we had in the past, I was a bit flummoxed.  My only switch is to the water pump.  And then there is the thermostat for the heater.  I'm going to…"
