I had check valve on the brain when I wrote that, I meant to say "restriction fitting" not check valve when referring to the fitting on the engine that the return fuel line connects to.  Just find that fitting, take the hose off and see if it is full ID or 1/16" ID.    Sorry for the confusion.

Like Luvr said battery life is defined in cycles depending on percent of discharge - lifelines might have 5000 cycles at 10% discharge but only 1000 cycles at 50% discharge - FWIW

Thanks Disnow for the information,

I'll be posting some more results soon.  We purchased the OTR (trucker) model, and worked w/ their support before the install.  They (support) liked the idea of installing the antenna towards the back of the bus and using the refrigerator as a block between the external and internal antennas.  Install went very well, no oscillation - all green lights.   First time tests & work application successful.  Basically a doubling of bandwidth each time.  I use the antenna mainly for data connections.  Tested multiple times using speedtest.  About 6 Mb to 12 Mbps doubling each time. More testing to follow.  I'm actually surprised it is working so well.  But I'll keep testing and using for work & will report back.

Kind Regards, Phil

A battery's life is measured in cycles (discharge and recharge) I was told so some people use the batteries more and the life is shorten,the better the battery the longer the life with more cycles unless you have a failure BTDT  Grin

We have the roll down MCD off white vinyl with Black Solar mesh on the other roller. It does cut down on heat a bunch.

Battery life has been discussed several times before, and it always seems that there is a wide range of lifetimes. Some starting batteries only go 3 years, others go into the double digits. House batteries seem to do better. How much load is on them, how deep a discharge, temperature, brand, style, and charging quality causes the differences, in my opinion (and maybe luck).

Just replaced my first set of eight Trojan T-105s.  I was a little disappointed. They only lasted 13 years. And in that time, the price more than doubled!!
