If you want your custom golf carts to be taken care of properly, listed below are a few maintenance tips to help you get started.
Charge Your Custom Golf Carts
If you have just gone through 18 holes of golf or the equivalent distance, you need to charge your Myrtle Beach custom golf carts. You should also check the charge ammeter, which is the meter on the charger itself. You have to make sure that it is switched on. If you touch the charger, it will be hot to the touch and this could last for as long as 18 hours. Some units come with an LED charge indicator in their car dash. However, it won’t step its way up when it is being charged. It will move back to its original position once it is fully charged.
Maintain The Battery
As golf cart batteries get older, they start to use up more water. You need to check the water every other month during the first year and every month for during the golf cart’s second year and then every two weeks after that. Don’t forget to fill ¼” below the split ring’s bottom. The water must be added once you are finished charging. Doing so before charging could lead to the bubbling over of the battery electrolyte during charging. In case the plates are exposed, you should add enough water at about 1/18” of the plates before you charge the batteries. Fill the batteries with treated or distilled water. It is also ideal if the water has less than 200 total dissolved solids parts per million.
The batteries must also be free from corrosion or dirt to prevent too much self-discharge so you must wash batteries. However, you need to be careful. The battery acid could be harmful to your skin and eyes. It could also stain your clothes and the surface of the driveway. Wash your golf cart in a place where a stain will not matter. You should always wear protective clothing and eye protection. Additionally, place an automotive drip tray under the golf cart to prevent stains in its storage area. Once you are done cleaning the batteries, you should spray protectant on every terminals so that corrosion will be reduced.
Caring For The Tires
There are several benefits to having proper tire pressure. These include easier steering, longer battery life, as well as longer life span for the tire. Inspect the tires and be sure that it has the right pressure.
Put the golf cart in neutral as you park them and switch the key off. Leave the parking brake off and utilize blocks to stop the car from rolling if needed. Batteries will discharge slowly when being stored, especially in hot weather. Every 45 days, the batteries must be charged for a minimum of eight hours.
