My 5.9ltd comes with its standard stereo system and I additionally installed an ALPINE mp3/cd player.
my question is:
I often like to stop at wilderness and listen to my stereo with my girlfriend. How long will it take to drain all power from battery thus ignitions won't start up? Suppose I listen to it for an hour(which i did without any problem) and didn't want to take any chance so i decided to ride a little bit so the battery will fill up again. How far should i drive so that I can listen to it another hour or so when i stop? would it be ok if I just start up and stop or do I have to drive?
thanks in advance....
You don't have to drive anywhere, just let her run for 5-10 minutes every hour or two. Turn off the stereo and enjoy the tenacios rumble of the 5.9! (you don't reall y have to turn off the stereo!) Have fun!
