[DML] Re: Trickle chargers



Al,

When you connect a trickle charger, where do you connect the negative wire to?  The instructions say connect the red charger wire (pos)to the positive terminal of the battery, but the black wire to the vehicle chassis or engine block. Is the ground point near the fuse box the closest location to connect the black (neg) charger wire?

Thanks
Jeff
