    JS550 NOOB here. can you help me?

    I'm a total noob to this stand ups stuff. What is this oil filler? Someone told me they thought it was for the charging system? Also I hooked the battery up and it drained over night. Why would it do that (other than the obvious something is drawing current). is there away to shut it off? sorry if these seem like stupid questions but I just have no idea.Click image for larger version.

    my ski also has that cap, i could check my manual later.

    as for the battery, maybe it just doesnt hold a charge anymore.. time for a new one. you can get one pretty cheap and west marine.

    thanks for checking that. It's a brand new battery. I put a charge on it and see how it holds up after I reattach it.

    Not familiar with the 550 engine, but on the others, the plastic cap is an inspection port. Don't put oil in it.
