Glad to hear it... I'd been wondering if you were so busy reading it that you weren't going to let us know until you were finished with it! John

I was going to find out this morning. Had everything in my old van last night except the fuses and Xmitters so I could get a quick start. I loaded the rest this morning, grabbed a cup of coffee... and the @#$%^&*!!! battery was dead!

It has been charging (trickle) for the past five hours, so f I'm lucky, it'll go tomorrow! John
