    Any manufacturer may make a bad battery or even a batch of bad ones. That's neither here nor there. All you can do is your due diligence. The point I was trying to make is that AGM is a superior...

    That review is 6 years old.
    The most recent reviews are positive.

    The $420 battery was just an example of "best" available from my van. I'm doubtful that I would get my money's worth. But I will say that my original car battery (that costs over $400) lasted 13...

    AGM: Truly maintenance free
    Flooded: Marketed as maintenance free, but fine print says to check/add water to older batteries and in hot weather.

    If maintenance free is a requirement, then that eliminates flooded lead acid batteries. What's left? AGM for all intents and purposes. How do you select the best? The one with the best specs? The one...

    Yes, that is the reason.

    Not if the battery is dead.

    It was working fine. Then the next time I went to start the van, the battery was dead. I tried to charge it several times. It wouldn't hold...

    You say the deploy switch gets the platform only so far. Then the down switch further deploys it and then fully lowers it. That is how it is supposed to work. The limit switches select the platform...

    Interesting. I like the Denver airport. They definitely have more control if they don't contract the work to others.

    The people who operate the aisle chair are agents of the airport not the airline. They are not required to transfer you.

    I went around a DME once. They refused to work with me after then. Not a big deal for me. Just saying you need to consider that.
