Well, it appears the winter of '18 has cost me another car battery. I tried starting the truck today, and nothing. Tried jumping it, nothing. Voltage read about 11V, so it was not in good shape. Probably to be expected, it was an older battery, and the truck sat for at least the last 3 months without starting it, including that brutal cold spell last month.
Took it back to the store, it had about 80 cranking amps on it. It had a 3 year replacement warranty on it which expired, yep, last month. It did have a pro-rated 5 year deal on it, but it still cost me $60 for a replacement.
I don’t even want to try starting my mower, after it’s been sitting in the shed for at least 4 months since last using it. The battery had to be charged last year, so I imagine it’s muerto as well.
That would make a trifecta of dead batteries for me.
