Really? I don't think mine has one, or at least I didn't notice it. I just put a 5/16 ring terminal on the controller.

Question Re: Added ScottyB's Voltage Reducer

OK...I hope I'm not hijacking this thread...please excuse me if my questions are redundant (***disclaimer*** I don't know my backside from my elbow when it comes to electrical wiring and I don't want to fry anything...!!!

I recently changed from 4 12v to 8 6v batteries on my 2008.5 Precedent excel. I upgraded to new 4 ga cables and am adding a 30amp, 48v to 12v reducer which will be wired thru a Blue Seas Fuse panel, 6 circuits with negative bus. I plan to run 12 ga for the primary (red) input (from the 48v + on the battery pack) to the red wire on the reducer while adding an inline fuse holder near the 48v + post on the battery pack. The 12 ga black ground from the battery pack negative will go directly to the common negative bus on the fuse block which, I believe, will then share the 48v and 12v ground. The green will go to the 12v common post on the fuse block. The yellow will be routed to the positive side of the 48v key switch.

I'm a big believer in "once and done" and am trying to do it right the first time. At the moment, I'm only running LED headlights and taillights but want the option of adding USB and 12v charging plugs, possibly a radio, etc. in the future. There is already a 10 amp inline fuse in the harness for the lights which will be routed back to the 12v + side of the fuse block. My questions: Should I just add another 10 amp fuse in the fuse panel for the lights ? How big should the fuse be for the primary that feeds the reducer ? Is 18 ga wiring suitable for wiring the yellow to the key switch and for future additions ? Am I missing anything...???

Thanks in advance...

YUP It is, here why!
#1 As a sponsor here Scotty supports anything he sales.
#2 His equipment is usually of the best quality and well tested.
#3 His supplies 30 amps some others or only 20 amps
#4 The price of his converter is about the same or cheaper than most Chinese versions, Including the MadJax.

Thanks Scooterman!

How can I wire in the Converter so it comes on and off completely when I turn on and off the key? When not in use I want the Cart dead.

I redid the drawing to show a 20 Amp Cut out switch with a indicator light. This way the reducer can be turned off for storage, the ignition switch will cover the 12 colt side for anything like the radio and or lights and or so on.
