HI,

I recommend the Black and Decker 500amp jump box with tire inflator - Model # ***** It runs $80 at Home Depot or Walmart. I have an older version of this one by Black and Decker that is going on 9yrs old and still no problems. It has even jumped my RV with 3 dead batteries on occasion.

It is easy to use and extremely durable. And having the tire inflator on it is nice in case you are out somewhere and come out to a low tire.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
