If This is the one You got, it says 1-7/8" hole:

I don't like those plugs because You have to cut the wires on your existing charger to use it.

My friend used the NOCO for his onboard changer which I think is a better design since it has a small pigtail cord on the back.

If You are planning on mounting the charger on the wall, then neither one of those is the right connector.

Those connectors are designed for you to install the charger in the cart, then just run a regular 120v 3 prong extension cord and plug it in.

If You are installing the charger outside of the cart, then You need an extension for the +48v side of the charger.

I think you are using the save-a-battery from granite digital, if so, just buy one of their extension cords for the +48v side:

20 feet:
http://www.amazon.com/Save-Battery-2050-Extension-Cable/dp/B002HGA9LK/ http://www.amazon.com/Save-Battery-2050-Extension-Cable/dp/B002HGA9LK/

Yes that is what i intend to do, install the fitting then , splice in a connector into the short length, that "save-a-battery gives you. Then just go buy a short length of lamp cord to fit in the wall plug. and the other moulded end, into the marinco fitting on top of the cart . $15.00 and $25.00 is a bit much when i can make the same thing with some engenuity, aaayyy bob s
running this charger INSIDE the cart . doesn't sound to good of place to me to put it .dirt and water and snow getting into it.I will have the "alligator clipped wire" . if i decide i need it on my hotrods ;i store every winter. thanks for the reply Sergio
