I service my battery twice a year - in the fall and in the spirng. I
disconnect the battery cables and remove the battery cover and top off
the cells with distilled water (about 1/2" from the top of the cell).
I then clean off my battery post and cables with a wire battery post
cleaner. At the first sign of the battery slow cranking the starter,
I replace the battery. I usually get 4-5 years out of my battery.
