Prior to storing or packing the SkelStart, please discharge as follows:
1 - If the voltage between the SkelStart “S+” terminal and the “−“ terminal of the batteries is above 2V
a) Switch OFF the SkelStart by holding down the button for 5 seconds.
b) Disconnect all the cables from the SkelStart.
c) Connect a 24V load, such as a headlight (or two 12V headlights connected in series) or a 24V blower motor, across the “S+” and “B−” terminals. Leave them connected until the light goes out or until the blower motor stops running. This will discharge the voltage stored in the SkelStart.
d) Verify that the voltage is 2V or less.
e) DO NOT use a cable, bare wire or low-/no-resistance conductor to discharge the SkelStart.
2 - Using a voltmeter, measure the voltage between the “S+” and “B−” terminals. If the voltage is less than 2V, the SkelStart is now considered safe for handling and shipping.
