  • Only use accessories that have been approved in accordance with current guidelines concerning electromagnetic compatibility.
  • In order to avoid damage due to voltage fluctuation, always switch off any electrical consumers connected to the 12-volt sockets before switching the ignition or engine on or off.

Using electrical appliances with the engine switched off and the ignition switched on will drain the battery.
