    It is well written for dummies however pigtail leads arent the answer for all as the dummies allow these to corrode also

    Rod and for anyone else...

    before going out on the water or it's been a few wks since you started your ski as part of your preride list throw your Multimeter on the battery set to VDC 20 and should read 12.50v to 13v just sitting takes a minute or two to remove push pins and battery cover and check ,now you have piece of mind and enjoy your day out of the water

    *important*
    make sure whatever brand of multimeter you use, make sure that its own battery itself AA , 9v etc is in good voltage ...

    Note: Do NOT start the engine before doing this pre-ride battery voltage check. You want to measure the resting battery voltage, which means the battery has not been charged or exercised, at all, in recent hours.

    As soon as the engine starts it will begin charging the battery. Even if you shut it down quickly, the immediate battery voltage will have been nudged upwards. By how much is a matter of guesswork and battery condition. Voltage measurements from the battery right after engine shutdown are not useful.

    Not at all.

    It is written for people who have an interest in understanding how to maintain and monitor their watercraft battery system.
