Takes up less space, weighs a lot less and spins the engine like crazy!
Even though I had an Odyssey PC680 previously, I went with the EarthX ETX900.
Here’s my question…:
First startup with the new battery was fine – engine came to life immediately.
My usual process is to bring the backup alternator (20 amp vacuum pad mounted) on line first – then the primary.
The backup alternator did not come on line – the primary did when I selected it.
Is it possible that the new battery tried to take so much power to recharge after the start sequence that is shredded the coupling?
I haven’t pulled it yet so I don’t know if that was the failure mode.
If so, I might need to change my pre-launch checklist….
