I get that little startup squeak also on my tm. And my belts are tight and new.
Yup. Nothing i can do about it. I have that belt super tight.

get this. It’s 8:30am and I’m sitting in the parking lot of the auto parts store. I’m watching the landscaper blow lawn clippings around while drinking a Bud Lite.

I keep a spare battery in the garage and charge it once a year and since all my jobs are 3 minutes from the house it wouldn't be a big deal to go home and get it but I also keep jumper cables in case I need to do a heart transplant..

1st job today. PM scheduled job for a “Vacant”. I walked in and this guy was wondering down the hall in his underwear. I don't know who was more surprised. Someone didn’t get the memo.

One of my tm's is grounded to the body of the van. To boost it I just run a single booster cable from the trucks battery to the unit battery.
