[DML] Re: Fuse box replacement

Regular driving won't help you if the alternator goes bad and overcharges the battery. Or if diodes blow and the alternator puts AC out which will destroy the battery too. What I did was stick a short piece of hose over the battery vent hole (it's oblong but the hose will go over it) and then stick the other end into the vent hose. On some batteries they have a vent on both sides. In that case you have to plug up one of the vents. Another good thing to do is to remove the battery to recharge it if it goes dead and to remove it over the winter or during long periods of storage. You are right though, driving is better for the car and all of the systems then to just let it sit.
