At idle what should the output of a Mercury 150 4S be from the alternator?
At 1500 rpm it should be?
And is there a reason testing with a multimeter at the cables to the battery would not provide this information?
What about the readout showing on the SmartCraft meter?
I ask because on Tuesday it seemed that the battery was draining down during the day........idling a lot.........and then about the 8-9th time I went to start the engine...."click". Broke out one of the trolling motor batteries and just never turned it off again.
At least it'll get Yul and us back on the water after gators one last time. Probably the last hurrah on that, especially as we finally get to take his boys with us.
We "talk" about applying for tags again just about every year, but never pull the trigger, maybe next year. It's been 10 years since we last drew tags. Father Time is an ****.
