5 days on factory batteries with power to spare

We just spent 5 days at about 7000' elevation and discovered the generator wouldn't start/run with error code 36 (runs fine at lower elevation). The good news is that the batteries took care of all our typical needs like running the heater in the morning and some fan time in the afternoon etc... my installing a digital battery gauge the day we left was perfect timing! Voltage read 12.4 at the lowest observation on the last day running the heater however it was 12.5 a little later. We didn't conserve power and just did our normal thing figuring we'd take off early if batteries ever dropped to 12.2V (~50%). The key note here is that the Harris or whatever batteries are now well into their 3rd season of use and still provide what I'd consider very good usable power.

Imagine an Axis as the largest rig in the area (many miles) ... mostly tents and a few teardrop types or scamp/casita small trailers. Got a nice creekside spot where the trail system was by walking on the down trees.

I've never experienced an elevation issue with a previous generator. Has me wondering what the issue might be? Oh ... and of course I messed with the generator for most of the first day, so the batteries started off the week with a lot of cranking duty!

Anyway ... the Axis 24.2 is still our favorite cabin on wheels to date.
