I'm going to jump into this thread not to thread-jack but so I don't create a new, related topic.
My P55000 has struggled every time I've used it, but it's worked. I squirted oil in all four corner channels, sprayed the risers with silicone spray.
This weekend at the campsite the power lift raised the roof about 75%, then I had to go lift it overhead like doing shoulder presses while my wife ran the lift. Now, in my driveway at home, it won't raise more than 12 inches.
My first thought is maybe it's battery related. I tried turning on the interior lights Friday after being plugged into all day and they didn't turn on. The 30-amp fuse at the battery was busted, so I replaced it, but still no lights. So I think my battery is bad.
My question is, how do I test the battery? Is there something I can add to it to show me the charge level to know if it's bad? I'm quite new to this. I'm guessing I can go to Autozone/Walmart and get a battery tester that hooks onto the battery?
