    Default Battery Pull for Winter

    I always pull my batteries out of my big boat
    I pulled the battery out of our
    2007 Wake Edition
    The battery level is only half full
    Does the water need to be to the top like other batteries?
    and
    What are people's thoughts on pulling the batteries out


    Thanks
    Wayne

    If your battery acid level is low than get some distilled water and top it up and than give it a good charge. It is good practice to always pull your batteries when they are not going to be used for a while and charge them at least once a month. My interstate battery guy once told me that batteries loose 1% of there charge per day when not in use, and when they get too low they start to desulfate and than the batteries are junk. If you don't have one, get yourself a good batterie charger with a float system on it. This way you can charge the battery and when it is done it will turn the charger off and you won't over charge your battery.

    According to Quinns Marina
    The worst thing I could do is pull the battery out
    And store it in my house
    Good thing I pulled them out because the water level
    Was so low that the battery would have been garage by spring
    Thanks for the info

    I'd change the oil if it wasn't done in the fall...other that that you should be good to go.

    Curious as to why Quinns would say to leave the batteries in...did they give you a reason for this? makes no sense to me and not sure why having them in the house would be a bad thing, especially if it lets you pu tthem on charge every once in a while. Maybe they just want to sell you a new battery every year when yours does not come back after the winter.

    Not sure why they said that
    I felt they overcharged me as well
    In the fall guess I will have to take it to St Onge


    What kind of oil should I put in?

    Thanks

    I am not a bomb 4 stroke guy so I couldn't tell you exactly...I do know the yami 4 strokes used a 10w30 yamalube but I think the bomb uses a syntehtic bomb oil of some sort...but I could be wrong..its only 2 strokes for this guy.

    If your not in warranty anymore I would hit up X2guy or jetx here on the boards....they both do watercraft servicing and repair and are very affordable and do really good work. You can check them out at www.ftmracing.ca and www.jetx.ca/

    I have had experience with X2guy (Doug) and he does amazing work. My Superjet is currently in his shop getting the turf done. Will be using him again in the future for sure.

    Thanks for the info
    I have left Doug a message to call me
    I know the supercharger was repaired last June by Quinns
    I would have to check the bill to see if they did an oil change
    I also paid alot of money for winterizing I thought
    160 dollars
    I guess that does not include an oil change
    This is our first PWC and they are not very informative
