    Default Charging your RT from the trunk.

    Well I read a thread here about charging the RT from the trunk. It started out by saying: Remove the cover off the right side fuse box in the front truck. F6 is Labeled Key F7 is Battery."

    My 2011 RT SM5 has the fuse box on the left side looking in and all the fuse positions are full. I didn't see an F6 and F7. Are there different instructions for my machine?

    daz,
    your bike's 12 volt port in the rear trunk is hot all of the time: just plug your battery tender in there, and all will be fine.

    Geeze Bob thanks! I was just getting ready to install SAE pig tails on the battery and thought maybe I should ask. Of course I never thought to check it out first. By the way, I just changed my oil by only removing two panels like Lamonster talks about. 10 you tube videos say you have to remove all the left hand side panels. Not really if you are not afraid to jack your machine up and crawl around!

    A battery Tender Junior is nowhere near that limitation.
