    I have a question about the H/D trickle charger..I replaced the battery with a new battery since I don't ride very often I hooked up the trickle charger the red light came on and stayed on..about two weeks later I noticed the red light was blinking??? so I unhook it from the battery and the light still stayed blinking so I unplugged it from the wall. This is a factory trickle charger, I thought I could leave it on year around? Am I wrong in this thinking? Why does the red light blink? It for a 2007 ultra the old battery died and I replaced it with a new battery.

    Check the in line fuse of the tender wiring that goes to Your battery.The fuse holder is close to the battery.

    THANKS the fuse was blown...I guess maybe we had a power serge and made the trickle charge act up? who knows but THANKS it was the inline fuse that feeds the wire from the charger...
