Default Electric Cart-Outdoor Storage

I recently purchased a 2010 Club Car E that will stay at our home in Florida.

I am looking for the best way to store it and how to store it.

Thanks in advance.

Great question! I will be doing the same thing. So, will be watching this thread.

My cart will stay at a lake place where it could be 1-3 weeks between visits.

These carts do really well outdoors. Soft covers can protect upholstery etc from the elements. If it's a utility cart then you can just leave it exposed. I have ranch carts (vinyl seats) which have been left exposed for many years.

What about the chargers? Is there any particular things we need to do or be worried about?

The cart salesman that I bought my cart from says that he leave his cart plugged in during the week with the cart place next to his camper with the charger underneath the camper on a small wood box/platform to protect from rain.

There are lightweight nylon, and/or heavy vinyl covers available - depending on your application. I use heavy in winter (I live where winter is REAL) and the lightweight nylon dust cover in summer. My personal belief is KEEP THE CART PLUGGED IN while storing. I got 11 good years (fairly unusual) out of my battery pack by doing that. The heat in FLA probably won't let you get that many years - but topped up batteries are healthiest. CC chargers monitor the level of charge, and recharge automatically when needed.

Here's one that seems like a fair price...

Oh yeah - I place the charger on the passenger floor of the cart - under the cover, and a fairly short outdoor extension cord is the only thing exposed.

What do you guys think about keeping it on a trickle charge? Our cart will go months in between use.

We are pretty limited in our space so it sound like a cover will be the way to go.

Does anybody put there carts on blocks or get the tires off the ground?

For winter storage I back it onto 1/2" soft plastic pads under the wheels on the concrete to avoid flat spots (but wheels not off ground). Yes, I have just started using BatteryMinder for winter storage with my new pack - but there are more affordable versions that do essentially the same thing.

I use a Sav-A-Battery From Granite Digital.48 volt maintainer keeps pack fully charged, Can keep it connected indefinitley. If power goes out it will restart when power returns. Only puts out 2 amps. Have mine almost 1 year , no problems. After full charge with standard charger , hook this up and walk away.
Keeps my 4 year old pack at a constant 53/55 volts. Also check out a thread by Olman he just uses this all the time.
