Please refer to the engine manufacturer or your Sea Ray dealer for the size and category of battery needed (or required) for your particular boat.
Check the fluid level in the battery cells approximately every four weeks, and more often in summer and hot zones. The fluid level must be between the lower and upper markings. Replenish only with distilled water. Do not use metal funnels. Coat battery terminal clamps with silicone grease. Keep battery clean and dry. Use only a battery charger designed to charge automotive/marine batteries when batteries are disconnected from the boats electrical circuits.
Caution: While the engine is running, the battery terminal clamps must not be loosened of detached, nor should the battery switch(es) be turned off; otherwise, the alternator and other electronic units will be damaged. Never use an open flame in the battery storage area. Avoid striking sparks near the battery. A battery will explode if a flame or spark ignites the free hydrogen given off during charging.
