    Well, I had the alternator rebuilt on my truck to work out to like 190A, and I use ever start batteries. They aren't my first choice in a wet cell, but I was in a bind. Yes, I do short them out in about 90 days on the dot.

    No. My problem is me myself and I.

    I try to use those batteries like a deepcycle battery and it doesn't work.

    Back in my truck's prime, it was not uncommon for people to want me to show up at a field party to provide tunes. A. I have a 4x4 truck and get into some places that cars can't, and B. I'm about the only one they know that has a stereo like this in their truck. Hell, when I was in HS, we we taped hoses to each tailpipe on my truck and ran the exhaust out the door so I can idle the truck and play tunes at an FFA dance. I shit you not.

    Anyways, when I'm outside working, I usually have some tunes cranked on the truck with out it running and that's what kills the battery.
