I change my battery every 2 years (even if it has 5years on it) then keep the old one under the seat as a spare just in case :wink:
03 transit 125t280 2.0 tdci swb executive college blue 92 crewcab. Built in Belgium so deserves lots of love. 218,000 miles on the clock.

Instructions for use. fill with fuel. start engine. drive like a t#@t.

I highly recommend some led strips, I've got 4 and they are well bright but don't use any power, I still have the 2 factory bulb ones which are just pathetic, I have a big switch that turns on my inverter and added rear lights, I've accidentally left them on for days at a time and it never flattened the battery not a sniff, 8)

I just done 2 battery warranty jobs last week, my big Bosch silver 4yrs and 2 months(5yr guarantee) old and Euro car parts swapped it no problem and same with the missus"s Scenic it also was a 5yr guarantee but a 3.5 yr old Duracell and again Euro no problem changing it (excellent deals on-line with discount codes)

Just the 1 bjt? That's asking for trouble whilst wearing assless chaps in a layby also known as the local dogging spot :shock:

I seem to recall a similar fate to a chap in a southern electric van :lol: oh the irony of it :?
