My generator and 5951 wireless remote are almost exactly a month old. I've had the wireless remote plugged into AC the entire time, but now notice that my battery indicator shows that the battery in the remote is about 2/3 gone. Does anyone else have this wireless remote and if so, have you had a problem with battery life? Do I have a bad unit or is this a design defect?

I've seen more than one example in the past with other manufacturers where they have design problems such that their battery backed wireless devices consume battery power when running off of AC power. I had to have a wireless weather station display unit replaced for this reason. I hope that Generac doesn't think it acceptable to have to replace batteries on this thing ever month while it is running of AC power!

I've had mine for 4 months now. No problems whatsoever.
