Default Powerwashing battery compartment

One quick question, so, if I want to clean my battery compartment out with a power washer or a hose should I disconnect any of the batteries Or other cables when I do it? Thanks in advance

A power washer would be pretty rough on stuff (not to say I havenít done it.). If youíre just hosing it off I wouldnít disconnect anything, just donít get the controller wet unless itís an Alltrax.

The pressure can get water inside all sorts of stuff. I apply a soapy mixture, using a brush with a handle a couple feet long, then rinse with garden hose spray.

Funny this topic came up, I'm going to do this very thing this afternoon.

BTW. I usually unhook the pack mains and let everything dry a while before hooking them back. The only problem I have ever had with the water is the reverse buzzer sounding off for some reason.

Yes- the reverse buzzer will do that sometimes to me too.
