    Well I thought I did .
    I learned a lesson yesterday, cheep Multimeters should be used as a general on off type of thing ( voltage or no-open or closed) not for a scale figure.

    Example, I have been checking the rigs voltages with load without ect.
    I been having some battery issues. The cheep meter was reading 1.6 v higher than my calabrated Fluke :doh:

    I guess its time for that new Oddsey battery.
