Guys, the alligator clips that come with the Schumacher trickle charger that I have make it impossible for me to reach the negative terminal (bolt) depicted in the attached image.

Question: Can I ground the negative (black) clip anywhere else? The only areas that I can reach are the bolts and bar that I've drawn "Black Circles" around in the attached image (please see). However, when I attach there, I have noticed intermittent sparks.

Is attaching the negative clip ABSOLUTELY essential for just trickle charging?

I just use the Aluminum cross braces as the ground. Seems to work just fine.

If you are on current software version 535 you should not need a tickle charger anymore. Since 530, the 12V is charged by standard wall charger connection.
