    Electric Golf Carts

Rated:

 I just bought a cabin and they asked me if I wanted to pay extra for the two electric golf carts. Because it is a steep hill form the cabin to the dock I said yes. My question is, not knowing anything about golf carts, is how do they plug in and how often to charge them? I found in the garage what I consider to be the chargers but haven't had time yet to look at them much. I closed yesterday.

   I'm not much for pushing a golph cart up a hill from Dr. Phyl  6/15/2012 1:58:18 PM
  so I'd plug it in every evening of the day I used it. If the charger is any good it won't over charge,,, and be sure to check the water level in the batteries once in a while.

   What the Doc said. Just curious. from Spinny  6/15/2012 2:05:13 PM
 Did you buy them outright or bundle them into the mortgage?


I ask because a friend of mine somehow bundled one into his lakehouse mortgage, which I didn't think you could do and I wouldn't want to pay the interest on something so insignificanr.


   Outright from Cougarcat  6/15/2012 2:09:50 PM
 I bought them outright. I'm not real good on depreciating assets on a 30 year note.


Do I just need to find the plug on the outside and plug them in at the plug. That is what I'm thinking. I'm not going to get C-Spots help.


   Not sure about the plug-in from Dr. Phyl  6/15/2012 2:18:22 PM
 been many many years but the ones we used at work had a cord that went from an outlet to the cart. It was an onboard charger type deal.


   Could be any number of different from Crowbar  6/15/2012 2:22:38 PM
 ways to plug the carts in. Have seen the plug centered on the face panel below the seat near the forward/reverse swith. Have seen them on the rear fender. Some you have to flip the seat forward and plug in beneath it. Shouldn't be too hard to figure out once you have time to look them over.


   I think.... from Bass Stalker  6/15/2012 2:23:00 PM
 Unless the carts have a built-in charger, you would need a charger that you would plug into the cart and the charger would then plug into a regular outlet. Very similar to charging the batteries in a boat.


If ya can't figure it out, ask Sammy. He's the resident cart expert. Might want to ask him about "Cart Safety" while you're at it!

   The charger should from Spinny  6/15/2012 2:25:20 PM
  plug into any ac outlet and the charging cord into the recepticle on the cart, just below where the driver sits.


is it an EZ-Go or Club Car?

   Yes most golf cart chargers will connect to a standard 110 volt outlet. from Wackoman  6/15/2012 2:27:01 PM
 
If the plug on the charger will fit into the outlet you found in the garage then do it. The worse that can happen is a tripped circuit breaker. But only if the plug and receptacle match. Do not modify anything 'cept your golf swing!


The same outlet and/or circuit may not hold two of those chargers. I think they are a pretty heavy current draw at low battery voltage. Anyway they are all kinds of different models or carts and chargers so I can't tell you without looking.



   Golfing from Cougarcat  6/15/2012 4:28:26 PM
 I last golfed about two years ago. I think I lost most of the golf balls I had and deemed I would not golf anymore. I golfed right handed and also used to bat right handed but I am left handed. If I was to ever try golfing again I think I would find a pro to teach me and get left handed clubs but this shouldn't happen anytime soon.


I have two cheap sets of clubs that my Son uses. He has a beautiful swing and it goes where he wants most of the time. He also was a hockey player and I think the swings are similar.

 Don't forget your helmet, specially when driving downhill.


Right Cbar?

   True Sammy from Crowbar  6/15/2012 5:35:52 PM
 Since you are just starting out with them, a helmet is a must. Once you gain Sammy's level of experience and master the "Roll With It" technique, the helmet can become optional.


   Hill from Cougarcat  6/15/2012 8:19:33 PM
 Did I explain about the steep hill with winding golf cart path to the dock?


   Yessir from Crowbar  6/16/2012 9:37:49 AM
 You did. That's why we wanna make sure you protect your melon.


Maybe you could just duct tape a pillow around yer head? Be much cheaper than a helmut and you could just take a nap wherever!


Helluva an idea me Spinny!
