GPC-MAX General Safety Precautions
- Do not expose the GP Smart Charger to rain, snow, spray, bilge, or dust. To reduce risk of hazard do not cover or obstruct the ventilation openings.
- Do not install the GP Smart Charger in a zero-clearance compartment. Overheating may result.
- To avoid a risk of fire and electronic shock, ensure that existing wiring is in good electrical condition; and that wire size is not undersized. Do not operate the GP Smart Charger with damaged or substandard wiring. Be sure to tighten all connections securely. A loose connection can quickly cause terminals and wires to overheat. Review unit labels for recommended terminal torque values
- The battery terminal not connected to the chassis has to be connected first. The other connection is to be made to the chassis, remote from the battery and fuel line. The battery Smart Charger is then to be connected to the supply mains.
- After charging, disconnect the GP Smart Charger from supply mains. Then remove the chassis connection and battery connection, in this order.
- Do not charge non-rechargeable batteries.
- During charging the battery must be placed in a well-ventilated area.
- The battery Smart Charger must only be plugged-in to a grounded outlet.
- If the power supply cord is damaged, the manufacturer or its service agent or a similar qualified person must replace it in order to avoid a hazard. Never leave the Smart Charger unattended when plugged in.
