8. The tops of batteries and battery hold downs must be kept clean and dry at all times to prevent excessive self discharge and the flow of current between the battery posts and frame. Electrolyte spilled on batteries never dries or evaporates.

9. All connections to batteries must be maintained clean and tight. Due to heating and discharge rates, bolted connections loosen over time. Re-tighten the connections twice yearly to the torques specified by the battery manufacturers.

10. Follow all operating instructions, cautions, and warnings as specified in this manual, on the charger, in the battery manuals, and in the vehicle manuals.

9.1 Personal Safety Precautions

1. Have someone within the range of your voice and close enough to quickly come to your aid when you work near a lead-acid battery.

2. Ensure that ample fresh water and soap are nearby in case battery acid contacts your skin, clothing, or eyes.

3. Wear complete eye and clothing protection. Avoid touching your eyes while working near a battery.

4. If battery acid contacts your skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water. If acid enters your eye, immediately flush your eye with running cold water for at least 10 minutes, and get medical attention immediately.

5. NEVER smoke or allow a spark or flame to be in the vicinity of a battery.

6. Be extra cautious to reduce the risk of dropping a metal tool onto a battery. It could spark or short circuit the battery or other electrical components that could cause an explosion.

7. Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches when working with a battery. A battery can produce a short-circuit current that is high enough to cause a severe burn.

8. NEVER charge a frozen battery.

10. CHARGER OPERATION

WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF AN ELECTRIC SHOCK, CONNECT ONLY TO A SINGLE-

PHASE, PROPERLY GROUNDED (3-WIRE) OUTLET. REFER TO GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS.

CAUTION: MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS A RECHARGEABLE DEEP-CYCLE BATTERY WITH

THE PROPER RATED VOLTAGE FOR THIS CHARGER.

DANGER: TO PREVENT ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DO NOT TOUCH UNINSULATED PARTS OF THE

CHARGER DC OUTPUT CONNECTOR, BATTERY CONNECTOR, OR BATTERY TERMINALS. MAKE

SURE ALL ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS ARE IN GOOD WORKING CONDITION. DO NOT USE

CONNECTORS THAT ARE CRACKED, CORRODED, OR DO NOT MAKE ADEQUATE ELECTRICAL

CONTACT. USE OF A DAMAGED OR DEFECTIVE CONNECTOR MAY RESULT IN A RISK OF

OVERHEATING OR ELECTRIC SHOCK.

WARNING: CHARGER IS NOT TO BE USED WHILE THE BATTERY POWERED EQUIPMENT IS

OPERATING.

ATTENTION: N

E PAS UTILISER LE CHARGER PENDANT QUE L’EQUIPMENT EST EN MARCHE.

WARNING: LEAD-ACID BATTERIES GENERATE GASES WHICH CAN BE EXPLOSIVE. TO

PREVENT ARCING OR BURNING NEAR BATTERIES, DO NOT DISCONNECT THE CHARGER DC

OUTPUT FROM THE BATTERIES WHEN THE CHARGER IS OPERATING. KEEP SPARKS, FLAME,

AND SMOKING MATERIALS AWAY FROM BATTERIES.
