No problem with a jump start. Normally we use a jump box when they are towed in and dead on the lot.

.

However, as with any computerized vehicles they do recommend disconnecting the battery before charging, (not that we always do)

.

Attached are some guide lines for charging the battery. Remember that a jump from another vehicle is just the same as a charger, thanks and Happy Holidays to you.
