Let'* not sit here and argue like a couple school girls over how frequent etc.

I believe we all agree. Either a fuse, trickle charger or the connector will remedy the situation. If storage isn't a long time, then the suspension shouldn't seen any problems or rot any more than it being driven infrequently.

Brian, can you trickle charge your battery to avoid having it go dead on you? What intervals do you start your car?
I start the car about once a week. I take it for runs around the neighborhood about once or twice a month. I have a trickle charger setting on my battery charger (2amps or 6amps). Will this hurt the battery in any way leaving it on trickle for 24/7? The air seems to fill the shocks about every 6-12 hours so yes they already probably need work, but in the mean time I was looking for some convenience. Hopefully she can get back on the road some day as soon as my daughter can afford the insurance ($2700/yr)! Thanks for all the tips so far boost and the rest of you!
