Genset update.

OK, the battery was on a small charger for 24 hours. Came down to the boat and tried to start the Genset. All I got was some stutter from the starter solenoid but it didn't start. I jumped it from the engine start battery and it started right up. As soon as I disconnected the jumper, the genset quit.

So my guess is the battery. Second guess would be the alternator on the genset. There is no other charging source for the genset battery.

AGM battery, how do I test it? I am an AGM virgin.
