That's Great News-

Take your time on your 8 mile trip to home base-
I would not exceed over 90psi in the tires-

Good Luck-
MJD

Darn, I guess I can drive back. I turned the A/t power switch off, do you think that’s enough?

Nope on the AT switch. That still allows the parasitic loads to drain the batteries. My '83 won't even go 2 days without being plugged in or having the negative cable off the batteries.

You don't want to damage your new batteries (anything below 50% discharged is bad).

Good luck and welcome to the club!

Ok, will unhook. And thank you for the tip on the tires. The tread on all the tires looks brand new but I know the age had to dry rot these things

The generator has a manual locking device on the bottom, You have to unlock first then try the switch. I forgot to lock mine back a few weeks ago and when I turned out of the subdivision I watched it slowly extend out. I would drain moisture out of the air tanks before driving it as well. The first time I did mine they had several quarts in them.

I'm no expert but would be more than happy to meet up with you at the bus for a general walk around to talk about it.
