Whether it’s the battery or the wiring you can bet you will need to check this system thoroughly before heading out onto the water this coming spring. You can start by inspecting all electrical connections for corrosion or other debris. A good practice is to remove all terminals and clean them thoroughly with a wire brush to remove any remnants from the previous season.
