Got the F250 all fixed up and charging...The extensions on the leads I made did the trick.

And more importantly, no smoke came out of anything!   :burn:

Awesome! Glad it's all sorted out. I am sure your batteries will last much longer this time around  :clap:

Gonna take the F250 hunting this weekend...gonna be nice to start it up all fresh...and my side by side all fresh too!    We had the cold front blow in, 32 outside right now.   Thinking of hooking up the block heater tomorrow.   LOL...Kidding.   

Also ordered a crank puller tool for my side by side and a new kawasaki CVT belt...that project is going to happen AGAIN.

I like your plug idea Steve, I just routed the charger plugin to be down by the factory block heater and reach in and pull it our to plug in. I sure like the idea of mounting something that is weather proof like above. :cheers:


Just remembered to take a picture of it



The small one is a trolling motor outlet.  It has 3 pins in it, I just used two of them, the other is dead.

The trolling motor plug is to a SAE plug, to mate up to the Batterminder changer.

So how do you hook the trolling motor to the front of the truck?  :Me:

Open the hood and hang it on the radiator.

It is kind of comical that I use a trolling motor outlet and a shore line plug on a truck  :slow:

Actually, it makes perfect sense. This would also allow you to drive directly down the launch ramp instead of that messy backing up thing.   :funny:

I did have someone used the nickname for the 1972 Cadi on it.
