Yep, got a Tender Jr. It will charge till the battery
is fully charged and then "float" charge to keep it
"topped" off. I had this on the motorcycle I just sold
since it's been sitting for two years and the battery
was $80! But, due to my laziness, I forgot to keep an
eye on the water, it boiled out three cells. :-(

I actually do not have a battery for it now as while I
was selling the P6, the battery died the day the guy
was to pick it up. So I took the new battery from the
P5 and installed it into the P6. I've checked at Wally
World and the Maritime battery is around $62. Local
Costco is around $56.

Montclair? as in East Oakland CA? I knew of one in
Benicia or Martinez CA that was the sister of my car.
It was white and mine was grey. Funny enough, I don't
live too far from where that one was stored and mine
was closer to him than to me, funny huh? :-) Both of
us had to tow them, in opposite directions no less! He
even swears he saw me the day I was towing it home.
LOL! He was braver than I too. He used a little old
Toyota truck to haul it home. I used an Astro van with
a big 4.3L six and I was scared. The P5 is 3600lbs!
