    Battery drain with ski off.

    I'm getting a 50ma constant drain on the battery with nothing on.
    My bilge pump in on a seperate line.
    Is this normal?

    It's not normal. Any gauges installed?

    I don't know. I only measured it because I saw a small spark when I hooked up the battery. I don't remember ever seeing it spark before.

    The drain goes away when I pull the 30 amp "charging" fuse.
    I'm not getting any charging errors on the cluster or Candoo.
    Mabe I got a little water where it doesn't belong. I think I finally have all the water problems fixed. I'm going out this afternoon. m\Maybe some engine heat will clear it up.

    I finally got my ski back in the water without any problems. Stage 1 with Jerry reflash. On the cluster: before 69 mph/8040 rpm. Today full tank of gas, slight chop 74mph/8383 rpm. I'm satisfied. A 65 year old shouldn't be going that fast anyway.
    Still have the 50ma drain problem. If the battery has been off for a while, when I connect the battery thecurrent is over 500mp and rapidly drops to 50 ma, like a capicator charging. I'll have to look into it more.
