When unshaded ground reaches 155°F your roof becomes inconsequential. On a beach in Quintana Roo, three roof airs barely kept my bus habitable. But once the local lobersterman's kids built a palmetto frond shelter 2 roof airs were more than adequate. The vehicle faced the ocean. The kids made a funnel-like entrance.

I will ask the autozone clerk next time if they have virgin lead batteries and ask about if the separators are 30 or 80 cent. Im sure that will help get me the right battery.
Just the other day it was 155 in the shade, on the ground, and I was wondering if my AC would cool the trailer running off solar as I wanted to eat an ice cream cone slowly without it dripping down my hand.
My theromatic ignitifier gave a reading of 0.330 and we all laughed. The other guy said his was 0.331 and I almost lost it rolling on the floor. If we magnetize the ignitifire 3% then re-test it gets even crazier. I suggested a 30 cent separator also, but everyone else thought it was crazy.

In some cases it's easier to ring down for room service.

Never in the history of the internet has so many theoretical keyboard professionals ever wasted so much time as to not answer the actual question of whether or not you have real life experience switching between the two.
As the OP I wish to thank those that have PMd me their experience outside of this ridiculous circle of experts trying to prove to each other they are smrt.
I write this in the hopes that the admins will simply shut this down.

You could simply ask them. That would waste fewer key strokes, and would have left folks willing to try to help in the future--but some of us will be "out" now. BTW I do have experience with six volt batteries--but it was 1954 and they are different today.

My company tested flooded batteries for the majors for 14 years. But if you prefer I retire from commenting then it's Hasta La Vista. I've got better things to do. [emoticon]
