Default Wire a 12v battery

So if I wanted to take a 12v battery and mount it under the rear seat putting it a battery box. How do I do the following stuff. Make it so I can charge the battery with out opening the battery box each time? Then where and what kind of fuse block do I put in to hook up all the devices? Also can I run a small inverter with two 110 outlets on it? Trying to put radio in an 12v outlet etc etc. Thanks

yes put battery in bag well
wire in a 12v charger and keep it in bag well also , then all you need is to plug it in
or use quick connectors between battery and charger


use a blue sea fuse block w/grounds



place 1 12v outlet on cart for inverter

Wow Crash Test that is exactly what I'm going to do!! As far as the Red terminal connectors I see you suggest, I run a Pos line from battery and a Neg line from battery to the red connectors?? Then connect them to the battery charger which will already have a bare Pos and Neg wire?? Then run a Pos and Neg line off battery to the Fuse Block?? Thanks just looking for a little more wiring insight as I have never done this before.

you can get another connector to do battery clamps so it can still be used on other batteries

What size and type of battery do you recommend? Want to stay away from watering it if I can. Will run radio and maybe a few small other things. And type of battery charger do you recommend for this application? Your diagrams are amazing, I'm thinking about putting a master switch in there somewhere as well. As far as running wires on a cart is there a preferred place to run wires to the dash area from the place where I'm putting the batteries? Thanks again!!!!

I have a yellow top battery in the back under my rear seat. Have 2 gauge wires running to the front behind the dash to 2 distribution blocks. All my 12v items run off of here vs my main batteries. I have a 2 amp trickle charger hard wired to the yellow top that has a two wire quick connect plug like the small four wire trailer plug except for two wires. I keep both chargers together, quick and simple to plug both in.
