Changing the Batteries in The BoggsMobile

Please note the schedule change for next week.

I was outside at 5:30 yesterday morning preparing to change the eight 4D batteries in the BoggsMobile. I turned all the power off at 6:05 and climbed in and set to work. At 11:20 I turned all the power back on and nothing has exploded yet...

I praise God for His help. This was a huge challenge for me and it was amazing to watch God provide the help I needed. Several men across the country have made their knowledge and experience available to me and it was a tremendous help. I could not have done it otherwise.

You will find a few pictures below.

Today I plan to put all the brackets, braces and walls back in place. I should be finished with that in an hour or so. Then I hope to start working on the trailer floor. I am installing a better tie down system over the next two days if all goes well.

Church last night was wonderful. Folks are really responding in the altar and God is meeting their needs. I am so thankful for the help of the Lord.

Ready to disconnect and remove...




Out...


Old ones on the ground.


A few were in very bad shape...



New ones ready to go in...



We used a floor jack to lift the ones on the top shelf of the rack. That was a great idea passed on to me by a fellow bus nut... It is almost impossible to lift 125 lbs bent over on your knees in a bay of the bus. Bro. Caleb and Bro. Colton were a great help with the manual labor of removing and installing the batteries.


In but not connected...


This is a  side view of the rack of six right before the last two were put in place.



Finished...
