Batteries
We have had problems with our batteries for a long time and feared we had to change all 6! + the engine battery. “Everybody” is saying that your batteries will not last for more than 5-6 years and ours were turning 7 this year. Fortunately we found a super electrician who was also a fridge/freezer specialist. He tested our batteries and said 3 is gone – the other 3 is as good as new!! I said but.. but they are turning 7 years – and he replayed: I tell you a secret - I have batteries in my home that are 14 years this year – still good! So he saved us for around 2000 US$. Then he looked at the freezer and said the problem is too thin wires from the batteries – let me change them and everything will work OK - and again he was right. We will surely use this guy again next year!!
