Re: Toggle switch on bench frame???

Hi guys,

Leaving the trailer plugged in with the toggle switch in the on position won't over charge the battery. the switch is there just to disconnect the battery so it maintains a full charge when you are not using the trailer and it is not plugged in. However, you should open up the battery box and check the water level at least once a year.

If the water level runs dry then you will have a the possibility of cooking your battery. (Reace's term, I am just the messenger)
