Dear yotphix, to buy a new "EverStart" battery, which is what these batteries are, at WallMart's advertised sale price requires a "trade-in" of the old battery. If West Marine", which of course has the reputation of good business practices, will pay me enough to equal more than the trade-in discount at WallMart, more's the better. I suspect that any money changing hands at West Marine will never dirty my palm, but will give them your name when I ask.
SailingDog, You're right, its the old ,"out of sight, out of mind" syndrome. I have removed the batteries and put them on a smart slow charger. Will know in a few hours if they can be saved. However, on further inspection, the problem seems to be more complicated than originally thought. There seems to be AC problems as well. This is going to take some time and detective work. Will let you know what Dr. Watson discovers. Thanks guys.
