Thought I would share a little mod that I completed on my G4 Summit but would apply to any electric start G4.  I generally connect my battery to a trickle charger in between trips and during the off-season.  Since the battery is under the rear cover I found a flange mounted connector that I was able to use for a quick and easy plug in for charging.  For good measure I used an inline fuse which would be dual purpose should I ever use the same plug for an accessory at the rear of the sled.  Now I can just plug in and charge (yes, I realize it's only 2 screws to remove the cover but this was too clean to not doo :).  Thought I would share the idea.  Pics to follow...

Where did you find that flanged end. My charge adapter is just spooled up under the cover.

Maybe throw the outlet up front, or on side of cover , so the Linq stuff can stay put?

By all means you can experiment. This seemed very clean to me and allowed for careful routing inside rather than having loose/uncontrolled routing that may result with some locations. Depending on what you run, you may be able to leave the Linq accessory on the sled at the same time. I'll say it does work with our Cargo Rack with a BCA bag :)!
