If you’re running ES, lights, winch other accessories no doubt it’s hard on your battery.
Hey I helped you; you never replied to my comment. Your condition has classic ES battery all over it. That’s probably why no one else replied.Wow - really surprised about the lack of help from a forum community like this. Guess I'll find another place where hopefully folks can lend a hand.
Goober - I installed the winch. I'll try you're idea about the kinking. I'm running the original steel cable at the moment.
I've tried something new and planning to try it the next snowfall. I strapped a full size deep cycle marine battery to the rear rack and wired the winch straight to it. The winch flies up and down now! I don't have the new battery tied into the charging system so I will need to put it on my Battery Tender after each use.
The battery seems like a beast, but how long it will actually last in use is still an unknown.[/QUOTE
I would think the charging system should keep up, but a hour or two of shifting, winching, lights on, maybe the battery experiences heavy discharge. But after a night of being on a charger you would think you could start out with full charge and no problems.
Let us know if respooling the cable helps.
That deep cycle hookup sounds great and put it on a charger too. If you want to connect it to your quad system you will need an isolator setup like RV cabin/engine battery systems use.
LOL take your medicine bro!Wow, OK. Thanks for a ton of static and attitude. Enjoy your little group. The attitude is not helpful or appreciated.
