    Hipster, 14 is the new 3! Try it in a 26-year-old truck.

    New cars smell like what ever they’re sprayed with. Now when they had leather seats……..

    Our local auto parts store sells used car smell air “fresheners”.

    For the practical joker in us all.

    My 14 year old truck doesn’t have any “stinkers” in it…….. not counting me.

    Re yesterday’s battery malfunction. When there are two of you, the one standing outside needs to immediately remove one of the cables when the dead vehicle starts. Another thing would be to disconnect your own battery from the system and hook it to the dead car by placing the cable directly to the terminal on yours. If that one doesn’t start shortly then hook yours back up and get your car going. No point in having two stranded vehicles. Car people always tell you to connect the negative end to a vehicle ground and not the battery to prevent igniting hydrogen gas that the battery makes
    .
    A guy gave me a jump years ago in the seventies and disconnected his battery from the rest of the car first. No blown ECUs alternators or airbags when you isolate. Just occurred to me…. It might work to have the heavy duty diode thing that you put in for a second battery to prevent the primary battery from draining when you are running appliances during your overnight camping. Might also prevent backward current surges. Ask about that one as I have never tried it.

    If I could find one that accurately reproduces “New Car Smell,” I’d put it into my 20-year-old car. The replacement seat upholstry (REAL leather) three years ago worked for a while.

    Connect the appliance battery to the “Run” line of your vehicle. That way, when the ignition is off, there is no power drawn from the vehicle battery. Also, no power is wasted on appliances when you want to start the engine. The appliance battery will be being charged only when the vehicle switch is in the “run” position.
