BATTERY MAINTENANCE

The battery should be examined for cleanliness at regular intervals

  • Read the Safety page
  • Keep cell terminals and connectors free of dust and corrosion. Terminal corrosion may affect the performance of the battery and could present a safety hazard. Should corrosion be observed, disconnect the battery, unbolt and remove the connectors, and remove the corrosion by brushing the terminals and connectors with a diluted solution of baking soda and water (sodium bicarbonate). Reapply an anti-oxidizing grease before reconnecting and bolting the connectors. Always maintain proper records.

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES REMOVE PRESSURE-RELIEF VALVES AND NEVER ADD WATER.
