Battery disconnect switch update

Lucy helping with truck

We ended up damaging our truck battery with all the recent draining and jumping and had to replace it with a new one..

The battery disconnect switch is working out nicely as long as I remember to turn the knob each time I get home.

Hi Mark and Anna,

Yup. I went through one battery when I forgot to open the switch.

As long as I remember, the switch solution seems to work well :).

My truck has the battery off as I write.
