So if cells are the problem, assuming nothing else, we wait for the bad 
cells to open.  The opening of cells is probably not an exact 
science.  They could open tomorrow, or they could open next year.  Does 
this sound about right?

Also, is the only reason the AUX battery hasn't been able to be switched to 
is because their isn't enough voltage available to make the system do the 
switch?  I know you're continually sending commands to switch, but it 
hasn't switched yet.
