Thank you, NEWBIE
If it were me, I would pull the battery out. If itís gone through a freeze and itís dead! Itís junkÖ
I would take it to your nearest Costco and exchange it for a new one.
Costco has the best warranty of all.
Make sure you go to your local auto parts store, and buy a battery filler container, then pick up a gallon of distilled water at your local grocery store.
(yes I said distilled)
Regular tap water is bad for lead acid batteries.
Now either, keep your unit plugged into shore power, so it will be charged all the time, or totally disconnected when in a storage facility.
NOTE; if a battery is plugged into power or has a good charge when disconcerted, the battery will not freeze.
My coach has six, 6 volt deep cycle batteries and the last about 4 maybe 5 years with a good maintenance program.
Just attempting to teach you and other that stop by to read this.
