I agree with Joesph.  My new batteries top off on the 14v range... maybe 14.5.  As I commented earlier, I suspect there are several issues.

Hi Eric,

I am suspecting the inverter because it is signaling a problem after a minimum of drain.  This is not to say there may not be other problems as well.

My personal bias is no.  I have never met your children , but my observation of my neighbors generally well behaved children is that Kids will take it off the designated path, and  Kids will take it on a public road.

Hi Eric,

I used to put 50,000 miles a year on my vehicle.  ....mostly on interstate.  It doesn't take too much of an imagination to consider putting a donut on a car and then letting ones mind wander about the need for a repair.

When I bought my last car, I picked up an extra rim at a junk yard and bought a real tire. I can see the donut for an off road trailer  but little else.
