Seadoo dealership said charge er up and rip.
Just put a 2 or 4amp trickle charger on it and let it sit until it's full.
Which is better 2 or 4 ?
Anything else I need to do besides look over the clamp connections, check the oil, make sure a bird hasn't started a nest in the pump.

Re: De-WinterizeOriginally Posted by Kinchyle
When i used to winterize my motorcycles I would keep a battery tender connected all winter. I always changed the oil, filter, checked all the exhaust pipes to make sure no rodents had found a new home, check all the clamps, clean the bejesus out of it, and then have fun!

I went to buy a trickle charger and they had a manual charger for 30 and an automatic for 60. The guy said the automatic you can just hook up and it will charge as the battery goes down.
Which do I need ?
Is it better to have an auto one for the winter and just leave it hooked up all season or is it better to just use a manual one on the battery once a month or two.

buy a battery tender Jr... they're like 25 bucks or something?
ur an ebay guy... search for it, u'll find them cheap. they work great and automatically monitor the battery and drop the charge and maintain it and whatnot.

Looks good! Is this something I could run an extension cord from the house and just leave in the ski during the winter or would I need to remove the battery and shelf it in the garage.

either/or... i personally recommend leaving the seats off at a bare minimum, but garage on a shelf is good. if an acid battery, loosen all the top filler caps to let the battery vent and let the gases escape with the trickle cahrger on to avoid a potential BOOM and make sure the acid levels are good.. if low, add DISTILLED water.

Another cool part about the battery tender jr. is the quick disconnect cable. Just leave the cables attached to the battery terminals; when you're done riding pull out the connector, plug it in and you're done. They also make a waterproof version for watercraft where the entire charger stays attached inside the boat. Says it's for PWCs, don't know if their rugged enough for what we doo.
