On our way home from Ohio and had to pull over very fast. On the drivers side black smoke was pouring out of the battery compartment on our TC. Not more than 2min after we had stopped a Ohio state trooper pulled in behind us just as I had just empted our fire extinguisher, he came running up with his extinguisher. Only thing I can see that saved the TC was the fuse link's I had installed last year it had blowed and the damage was confined only to the batteries and the compartment. It was my fault I don't check them as often as I should. So far all the 12v circuits check out ok. But some how the coaxial cables shorted out probably since it runs over the battery compartment. Spent all day splicing in new wire running into the box area. Order a new box just have to wait for it. Bought 2 group 29DC batteries from Wal Mart with 850 MCA. Yes these may not be the best but balancing the repair with the cost. They be fine for now
