Thanks - measured 12.8V and that seems to agree with my charger. I hooked it up and it read about 80% and only took an hour or so trickle charging at 2A rate to get full charge.

Just a prolog to wire shopping...

Went to Lowes this morning and the 6-2NM was $1.65/ft (much better than HD). I asked the wire guy if they sold it in rolls (50/100') and he said no - how much you...
