    Battery?

    The battery on my 2000 RX keeps dying out every week or so after I charge it up. I figure that it would be alot smarer to just get a new one for next season.

    What kind of battery should I get and where is the best place to go for it?

    I prefer the Deka ETX16L gel battery. Some have had good results with Odessy. Whatever you buy, go with a gel cell...they have more cca and last much longer. Make sure you plug the old acid vent hose with a golf tee too...to prevent water from getting into the hull.

    The gel and AGM(absorbed glass mat) are much better at handling shock/vibration. They can be left at low-to-no voltage and live....AGM is lighter than gel and holds a slightly higher voltage.


    I went to Deka a few years ago and glad I did (thanx, RQ).
