Question about Battery

Quick question:


I have a 2013 Z-1 291RL when plugged in to do you turn off the 12 volt knob or leave it on?

Looked it up on line and of course there was a million answers some yes and some no.

Thanks!

Are you referring to the battery disconnect?

Leave it on if wired properly by turning off your convertor will not charge your batteries

Leave it on, other wise like woodwalker stated, the converter won't be able to charge the batteries.

X2 on leave it on. The converter will charge your battery but if you do not have a plugin where you store it remember to turn it off. Mine stays plugged in all summer and i check the water level in the battery about every 2 or 4 months.

Turn the Battery off when it is going to be plugged in for a long time. Left mine on for 6 mths and it blew. I forgot it was on
