2020 OB Limited, Titanium & Magnetite Grays
I had been thinking, not willing to commit, about the same thing.I’m curious about a Lead Acid replacement for an ASE Outback, instead of an AGM. Just curious.
- I suggest that the ASS would need to be disabled. This is because I believe the ASS is the problem draw on the battery.
- The vehicle should be a daily driver to keep the battery properly charged. This is because of all the unknown things going on with the electronics during rest periods. This is only a guess so at least the battery condition should have close monitoring. An alternative would be to hook up a float charger to emulate a charge obtained from driving.
- Preparation for connecting a battery maintainer/float charger should be considered. Longer periods of non operation may need a charge supplement. I don't know this is needed, but maybe.
- Data including battery voltages at specific intervals need to be collected to verify proper charge is maintained.
