I will contact him. That solves 1 challenge.

The next challenge will be getting the larger 1/0 DLO cable attached to the F/R switch. Any problems there?

My cart already has 2 gauge cables on it if that matters in this discussion. But they are a few years old and are a bit stuff and have actually had the ends come off of them recently.

I work for an electrical contractor and got the DLO cable and lugs for free. I also have the proper crimp tool for the lugs. Have red and black heat shrink as well.

Welding cable has about 3 times more strands than the DLO cable, so it is a lot more flexible.

Do you have it in your budget to install a reverse contactor?
That would eliminate the movable flexibility needed by the FNR switch.

Also, hopefully the crimp tool You have access to is not the same one that allowed the ends to come loose in the original cables.

If a reverse contactor is the preferred method then I can likely do that. Where can I find one? I'm assuming you would just use the reverse side of the switch to energize the contactor?

I did not build the original cables on the cart. I bought the cart already built.

I am using Burndy battery lugs and the proper Burndy crimp tool on these.

ScottyB has a kit which includes a SEPEX style rocker switch for FNR:

Please note they have different post sizes, 3/8 and 5/16, so you need to decide before you make the cables.

You can also mount it closer to the motor/controller and eliminate a lot of cable, but folks with You particular cart need to verify this as I am not sure there is room back there to install it.

That works well, it's what I did with my cart. I had to borrow the tool and the lugs were expensive, but it made a nice connection I felt safe with.

I like the looks and idea of that. I have a 700A controller and a 10.2 HP D&D torque motor so I would need the higher amperage model. I have a couple of projects planned for after hunting season here. Gonna pull the body tub off and find a more suitable location to mount my voltage converter. Seems like the perfect time to add this while I'm working on it.

Hey mike. I am also an electrician and I had some lugs special made for my 2/0 welding cable. I will get a pic of it in the morning before I go to work. I put heat shrink on them also. I didn't have red and black option though. I only had black but I am happy with the turnout of it.

I have really been looking at that reversing contactor from scottyb because I guess the industrial electrician in me says go with the contactor rather than a F&R switch Lol. I think I have found a great place to mount it also under the access panel in the back. It would be close to the controller and motor so it will be less cable. I don't think it would take much bracket work to achieve this idea also. I am wanting to make a skid plate over the motor to protect the controller, solenoid and potentially the future reversing contactor but have not seen anywhere here that somebody has done that. I am trying to keep mud and sticks from getting in there. I use mine off road more than anything else.
