Hi Claire, my name is ***** ***** type of charger are you using, if you can give me the amp rating.


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's a Schumacher double amp either 10 for dast charge 2 for a slower charge. I can't figure out where the chassis ground is or can i use the back fender bolt?
Expert:  Kenny O. replied 1 year ago.

I would use the 2 amp setting, you can I would suggest going directly to a bolt on the engine, as the ground cable from the battery is attached to the engine. Using the fender bolt might be isolated.
