About a week ago, I happened to lift the lid on our battery compartment and found the terminals and connectors lathered in rainbow-colored frosting-like corrosion. Nasty, and possibly a factor in our batteries seeming to show lower voltages than I'd expected. . Today, I finally got around to disconnecting everything, cleaning the connections and terminals off with 1 tbsp baking soda dissolved in a cup of hot water to neutralize the acid, topping off the batteries with distilled water and connecting everything back up with a coating of dielectric grease. . Now I just have to figure out how to set the clock on the radio. . #herecometheswitchtolithiumcomments 😜 #airstream #batteries #airstreammaintenance
