Re: [IP] Disetronic Batteries



I agree.  It was pretty scary my bs levels usually excallate pretty fast and
I wasn't sure I would be able to dig my way out of the snow.  Luckily I got
out and got stuck coming home not leaving.  It has also taught me a lesson
to have more batteries on hand.  However I thought 2 would be enough until
my next order.  NOT   Carol T
