Light will go out when connections are made and come back on when battery charging is complete.

If you have a digital volt meter, put it on the battery while charging. Should read about 14.5 volts when the battery is fully charged. Don't leave the charger on after it hits that voltage because it is hard on the battery.

Another thing to mention is that the battery charge indicators that Vexilar uses are not terribly accurate. It is possible that the last LED is not going to come on until the battery reaches a voltage that the charger may never reach. In other words, the last LED may be calibrated to come on at 15 volts and the charger can’t get there or the indicator is properly calibrated to about 14.5 but the charger does not have enough oomph to get even that high. As I mentioned in my last post, the only way to accurately tell if the battery is charged is to use a digital volt meter.

Is this a new set up? If it is I would take it back and get one that works right. If the battery is several years old it might be time for a new one.

If I understand the vex. instructions correctly, the battery is fully charged when the charger led light comes on.

If I use the flasher for any length of time I leave the charger on all night. I have a battery that is 3 years old and the little trickle chargers that come with the battery has never hurt any of my batteries. I have left the charger on for 2 or 3 days with no ill effects that I have noticed.

    • 501A .Going earlier than my normal B season this year. 
    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me.
