So you wired the battery tender to the jump points and not the actual battery?We started this same conversation back in September. Our GV70 had to be towed in twice and we mostly got the same comments you did. We didn't want to accept the lame excuse of starting up the vehicle and taking a drive a couple times a week but they insisted there was nothing wrong with the battery. We like you do not drive every day but it was determined to be a defective battery mostly from draining on the long ship ride from Korea. We got a new battery from them but we do keep it on a battery tender. My husband routed the wire thru the grill and we have a little pigtail we can unplug and tuck into the grill and plug back in we we bring it back home. Works great and no problems sitting idle for awhile. Good luck to you...hope this helps.
