    Ohkei,
    You probably already know this trick! When you get back to Camp, with the Positive lead hooked to the Battery, touch the Ground Lead to the Negative post Terminal, and if there's any Spark at all, Big or Small, then there's a Drain, somewhere in the System! Your Correct with Installing a cutoff switch!(Ground Disconnect) Glad you were able to catch some fish. Were nailing the Steelheads, up here!

    Yes, I did get a small spark. I'm sure it's the radio I installed. It has a usb port that is always on, and I'm sure the voltage regulator that drops it to usb voltage takes a little juice. If I'm there every week there's no issue, but if I miss a week, it's pretty much dead.

    Decided I did not like the rear fenders, they worked but just did not fit. Went with these trailer boat fenders
    instead will paint when weather is warmer

    I wasn’t sure that the paint would actually adhere to the fenders. Some plastics are very hard to paint, and require expensive paints. The manufacturer produces them in whits and black, which what nearly all trailers are painted.

    I was wondering what you used on your frame? I might have missed what you said you used. I used, Eastwood's Encapsulate on mine and was very happy, and impressed with it! As far as the Plastic, components, I've had great results with Krylon products , over the years, on different plastics!
