It is a 12v unit and the timer says 6v and has a battery flashing

Any info on this? Just want to make sure it's not going to crap the bed

hmmm, those (The Timer) should be interchangeable between 6vdc and 12vdc setups ... have you checked the AA batteries in the unit itself?

If the lower battery is flashing (the one without levels) it means the backup AAs need to be changed.

Are you sure your main 12V battery is good and charged? If so, replace your AAs, then pull the pin connection and re-connect the timer. It should update itself to show 12V.

Not sure what the screen showed but the feeder was dead this weekend. The make and female connectors decided to have a bad corrosion party.

Not sure if this was part of the issue but it has been corrected

The corrosion ate the battery post

We greased the connection and changed all batteries, a week later still in business
