    Sorry to bombard this forum but im really new to this game and all that goes with it :Blush:
    Ive picked up a Honda em650 gen for whenever im on a site with no hook-up, ive noticed theres terminals for 12v jumpleads.....how do i use these on here and how do they connect to the generator as i see it looks like 2 spade terminal fittings are needed for the leads ?

    bear with me im a numpty :RollEyes:

    it should have a lead with a moulded plug with the two flat pins set at 90deg to each other.


    start the genny and run for a few minutes first to allow it to stabilize then simply connect to the pos and neg battery posts and plug in.

    its a battery charge function....not a jump lead connection.

    between solar power and daily movement of the van batteries should stay charged without a genny, stopped carrying out last year.

    Don't worry about them, using this output to charge batteries isn't very efficient ..
    just plug in your ehu lead and use your on board charger.
