    Had slow cranking on our RV. It's a Ford V10 with permanent magnet starter and GP 65 battery. Battery's old and I thought it was a goner. Would crank the engine cold but not hot. Cleaned terminals and put CP or whatever that purple goo is on the cleaned areas. Been cranking Cold and Hot since... So a good cleaning might pay off for you. Also, be aware the cables CAN (but not all that often) corrode inside the "sealed factory" terminals. That's why a Voltage Drop Test is good.

    I don't know where you are, Friday, but here in FL right now I can about start mowing from one end about the time I finish the other end. And we're only on a Quarter Acre!!!

    My wife was griping about having to start mowing just before Valentine's Day. I told her I was going to get her a goat for V-day. When the day came but no goat, I explained that it was too hard to wrap... it kept eating the paper!

    Bill, you're better off than I am. I read your reply aloud and MY wife said "I already have one."
