We've recently purchased and MK33 to haul our boys and their MX bikes around. The battery that came with the trailer was smaller than the box provided. I bought a DP27 to replace the 24 we had.
We went to the track this weekend and ran the generator for 20 hours straight. Everything worked fine until the AC quit suddenly. I accidentally turned the gen off while checking the AC. When I tried to restart the generator it clicked and hummed(dead battery).
I reinstalled the 24 and everything worked fine. I restarted it a couple of times to make sure it would start.
My question is this: Should I assume the new battery was bad or is it possible that there is something else wrong (generator not charging/wiring/etc.). We only ran the 24 for 3 to 4 hours but it worked fine.
Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.
We are leaving this week for Colorado and I would like to fix anything that may be wrong before we leave.
Thanks,
Steve Rees

Is there water in the battery or is it Dry, How many volts are in it ? If the gen is charging it you should be able to put a volt meter on the battery, Then start it, The volts should go up to about 14.4. The battery sitting should be mid 12's because I would imagain there will be a few small things drawing off of it.
