I'm 100% sure I did not hook the battery up wrong. I've pulled the battery out and will take it somewhere tomorrow and have it tested. I have this sinking feeling I'll be buying a new battery.

Just remember. If you have to replace it, buy a good one. A battery is not the place to try and save a few bucks. Your asking for trouble down the road if you do....

Yeah, I plan to shop around. I know one thing I won't be buying it at Wal-Mart.

Sears is having a sale on their batteries right now. I bought mine online last year for my Landcruiser and picked it up for free.

The DieHard Platinums are rebadged Odyssey batteries.

Thanks for the info on the Sears battery sale. Sears was one of the places I was going check out along with a local tire and battery store and a local auto parts store. Not planning on going to Walmart or Sam's Club.

My battery was toast. I bought a new Exide Nautilus Marine Deep Cycle. Hopefully this one will last a few years.

If I need to buy a new one what size marine battery should I get?
That's a 25 amp charger, and get as big a battery as you can fit

Thanks you. I feel better now that I have a good battery for my camping trip Memorial Day weekend. Hey and I was on the Exide website and my new battery qualifies for a $10 rebate. The battery cost me $89.99 plus tax. Not too bad.
