    Battery Tender and 12v Plug Install

    Today I started the winter plans for my Ultra LX.

    I took most of the ski apart for easy access to various parts.



    Saturday, my battery tender came in the mail, Decided to put it in today. I ran the wires, everything is working, just had one question,

    What is this sealed connection? What is it used for??



    It's coming out of the gromment where the battery sits.

    Thanks!

    Off topic: Dont mind the dirty brown stuff near the battery, Left some carboard and it got wet. Already cleaned it off.

    That piece circled in the pic is called DIAG and Key Registration connector.

    I went with Marc's ides on the battery tender.

    yeah I did the battery tender the same way. Just minus the rubber clamps. I just used the ones that were already there.

    Another little electrical thing I wanted to do was a 12 volt outlet, so I can blow up the tube faster.

    Where would be a good place to put that in??

    Thanks for the reply man!

    Are you mounting the tender inside the hull? I wouldn't do that. There is a good possibility of gasoline fumes building up in the hull, and any heat or spark from the tender could spell disaster.

    I have jumper wires and a quick connector on the batteries of my 'Skis. When I store them, I raise the seat and plug my charger into the quick connector.

    Nice setup Scott. I've always been a fan of this!

    The newer tenders (at least the 3 tender Jr.'s that I have) have only the "dongle" that stays in the hull while riding. When I get home I plug the dongle into the tender wire and it sits.
    I do pull the battery out and put it in the basement on the shelf during our cold winters.

    I do the same. Pop the seat and plug it in.

    Mounting the battery tender inside the hull might not be the best option. 120 Volts inside the hull is not a good thing, and the tender may not like living inside the hull with the engine heat and vibration, not to mention the moisture.

    I have mounted a marine grade 12 volt socket on the outside of the hull just under the seat (got the idea from Ph2ocraft).
    Marinco SeaLink 12VPK Marine Grade 12 volt locking Receptacle & Plug

    Edit: There is a marine grade fuse holder wired between the socket and the actual battery posts, with a 10 or 20 Amp fuse (forget which). It can handle even a heavy charge current or power a heavy external load (for a short time), but still protect the wiring from an unexpected short circuit.

    Not only does this socket accept any normal automotive 12 volt power plug, but the Marinco SeaLink plug can lock into place, then is released with a simple twist and pull.

    I plug my charger into the socket to recharge the battery. I simply wired a SeaLink plug to the output wire from the charger.

    I can also use the same socket on the ski to power 12 volt items - lamp, radio, blender

    Thanksfor this one. I have been wanting to install one myself wondering where would be good. If I am correct that emblem is a west marine? Is that where you purchased it?
