Re: '76 GMC won't start after winter
- Is this a GMC coach (VIN TZE) or a P30 chassis?
If it is a TZE, I can get you help.
If not, good luck trouble shooting.

I took the engine battery out and kept it on a trickle charge. The battery is fully charged. The shore battery to run all of the other electrical items appears to have been dead for quite some time, so I simply removed it.
