How long can a healthy battery usually sit without dying? I am going out of town for about 14 days. Should my battery likely start up again right away?

UNPLUG ANY UNNECESSARY STUFF---GPS, ETC

I SEE NO REASON WHY 14 DAYS WOULD BE A PROBLEM

BACK IN THE '80s WHEN I WAS A "PAID" US ARMY AIRBORNE RANGER---MY JEEP MIGHT SIT A MONTH AND A HALF, WHILE WE WERE DEPLOYED FOR TRAINING ALL OVER THE WORLD

HE'D FIRE RIGHT UP EVERY TIME. AS SOON AS WE GOT BACK AND WERE RELEASED TO BE GENTLEMAN-LIKE IN SAVANNAH!

I'D HOPE BATTERY TECHNOLOGY HAS IMPROVED SINCE THEN

'COURSE YOU GOTTA REMEMBERTHIS IS A "JEEP". THE MOST AWESOME VEHICLE EVER CONSTRUCTED!

----THE 1ST PIC WAS #1, 1977 CJ5----THE 2ND IS #7, 1946 WILLYS. I'VE HAD 5 OTHERS--STILL HAVE THE LAST TWO. NEVER OWNED NOTHIN' ELSE!

IF YOUR BATTERY IS INDEED STILL SERVICEABLE AND "HEALTHY", I DON'T THINK YOU NEED TO WORRY!
