speaking of batteries. I have had mine sitting on the maintainer all winter. Recently ive noticed that the maintainer will be blinking yellow. As in charging i do beleive. I have not noticed it steady green which should be a full charge. Not sure why. I do have an led underglow on it. Does draw a very slight volt. But until recently it would go flat green for some time. Any ideas wtf is going on? Havent tested the bettery yet

Blinking orange on a deltran means that the leads aren’t properly connected. Solid orange means it is charging. Blinking green means it is topping it off / over 80% and solid green means it is charged.

Gotcha. Well my assumption is that it is charging it then shutting down to prevent overcharging and then you're seeing it kick back on when the voltage drops some.

Pull the tender, wait a day check voltage compare it to when you pulled it off.
If you can get it load tested do so. Could be you lost a cell.
My deltran stays green once it's topped off.

I did pull it off the tender. Waited a day. Now will sycle between steady green, and flashing green. Steady is good, blinking is testing. Id say i am good.

I like chicken tenders.

Here's my battery.


A play on words, or words on play
Last chapter, verse in the final act
Words well scripted, each sentence choking
Inaudible gag, blanket which suffocates
As you eat another's words
Malnourished, you starve.
