Handling And Storing The Battery
Auxiliary battery Itself
Auxiliary batteries should be stored in cool, dry (27 degrees Celsius) places and out of direct sunlight.
MF batteries are tightly sealed to prevent acid leakage.
However, tilting the auxiliary battery to an angle of 45 degrees can cause acid to leak through the vents on the sides. Therefore, auxiliary batteries should always be stored in their upright positions. Prevent placing any aqueous or solid (i.e. conductors) bodies on top of the auxiliary battery.
It is extremely dangerous to use tools, such as hammers, on the auxiliary battery terminals when connecting cables to the mounted auxiliary battery.

If the memory fuse has been removed at the time of storing the vehicle, run the motor within 3 months to charge the auxiliary battery.
