LEWLINDAC5,
When I used to put my Vette away for the winter (in IL), I used to just pull the battery and keep it in the house. Every week I would go outside with the battery and let the car run for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Lew,

You'd think the car capsule guys would have thought of that. I guess you have to be resigned to the fact that the memory will be toast and all will have to be reset unless you go with a traditional cover. But those capsules are nice with the sealed environment - now that's preserving a car in grand style.

Good Luck!

I have yet to see a capsule here in California.

Considering that your biggest environmental problems are Santa Anas and Marine Layer....I don't think you ever will. :L :D

THE CAPSULE IS CLEAR SO YOU CAN STILL SEE THE CAR BUT BETTER THAN KEEPING DUST OFF THE GRANKIDS AND THE CAT CANT GET NEAR IT, LEW

I use the carbag myself. I run the cord in through the zipper where it ends when it is closed. If you have a Lojack in the car, you cannont disconnect the battery or let it lose power for more then seven days.
