BIL filled the drum on Sunday 11/30. It dumped on Tuesday 12/2. I found it on Thursday 12/4. The battery was good on 11/30 and was good when I checked it on 12/4. If the battery was weak, how could it spin out all the corn?
The feed times were all wrong when I check it on Thursday. I believe the time changed when it spun till the battery died. The timer has work flawlessly for 1 1/2 years.
I had a spare timer and battery at camp but dont think it needed to spin accept the deer are trained to come to the sound pretty good.
BTW - All the corn was cleaned up by Saturday!
Game camera caught it all...
