Re: Battery life short? What to check?

Allowing a battery to sit discharged will kill it. I suspect that's what happened. I figure a good quality deep cycle should be good for 5 years, maybe longer. A starting or combination start/deep cycle (like a Diehard Marine/RV) is good for 3 or 4. That assumes good maintenance.
