Wayne- The caps were on, but I believe they're vented. I know it's "My Bad" that I left it connected. I guess that I was just used to all the other chargers (Craftsmen) that drop back to trickle mode when the battery is "Up"! If I eff'ed it up, I'll man-up and buy a replacement. This is the only piece of equipment that I have with 6V, and Negetive Ground, to boot! That's why I went with that Schumaker Charger. The case doesn't leak, so it apparently didn't Freeze/crack, But God only knows what I did to the cell plates!I'd see if it would take a charge and try again. If not, then do as RandyM advised. Do (did) you leave the caps off the cells when charging it over the winter?
Another Question: I don't understand electric circuits that much. I've got two pieces of equipment, this one and a Kawi ATV that I suspect have (What I'm told is--) a 'parasidic' drain! (SP?). They're OK for awhile, but when left dormant, they go 'flat'!
How do I check that? I've got a Multi-Meter, but need an assist! TIA ~Scotty
[Should I set it for Ohms/Resistance and check for 'infinate' resistance on the leads, with the battery out of the circuit?] Or should I hook up one cable, and meter between the alternate post and alternate lead? Looks like I might be buying a battery, don't want to have to buy a meter!!!!! ~S
