    Guess you could call this a SPUT ("Simple" Pop-Up Trick). [:D]

    We were at Gulf Shores this past weekend and were packing up to head home. Got the PUP all packed up and closed down and was going to hook up the TV to head home. "Oh No!! [:(]" the battery was dead on the Expedition (TV).

    No Problem . . . PUP to the rescue. First try was to jump the TV using the PUP battery (no Joy). After an attempted jump from a super nice neighbor, the TV still wouldn't start. The battery was apparently completely shorted / dead. So, I just disconnected the TV battery and installed the PUP battery in the TV. Cranked right up, hitched up, and went straight to buy a new battery for the TV.

    BTW, that's the second battery I've had to replace in Gulf Shores. My F150 Battery died there last year. Now both TVs have new batteries and should be set for a few years. [;)]
