Just picked up an ASV RC100 (used) and they didn't have a manual with it. Now I'm looking for the battery and was wondering if someone may be able to find it for me? Over 170 miles round trip to the dealer for me. Maby direct me to a web site etc... Any help would help Thanks

The RC50 battery is in the engine bay, but I think that the RC100 battery is under the cab. I do remember seeing two remote jumping terminals by the engine bay so you don't have to lift up the cab to jump the machine. I think they are on the left side as you look at the rear of the machine. You might be able to contact your dealer over the phone and have them send you a manual.

Thanks, being Sunday the dealer was closed and 85 mi. away. I was able to start and get it off the trailer with 3 buckets. You have to raise the arm to get into the battery area and was able to raise the cab after I got it started. Just bought this ASV RC100 (used) from about 800 miles away. It has been sitting for over 6 months or more. It started when I tested it out but when I got it home (finally) it wouldn't start and the owners manual talks about everything but, the battery. It was good to open it up etc... once I was lucky enough to start the machine. Need to learn alot about the mecanical issues with this ASV RC100. Need a mechanics manual or something. Thanks Arnold

why did the battery die?
did you forget the ignition on, during the trip?

Not sure, figure it was sitting for along time and had very few amps. It is charging now and everything seems ok. No, I didn't leave anything on. I will see how the charge is tomorrow. Thanks

You can download the operator's manual for the RC-100 directly from ASV's website.
