Well that's what I get for typing a response on my phone with it's 4 inch screen. I only glanced at the name and I was thinking of Revolution Golf Carts. My apologies that I misread it. Still a well thought out consistent post with your experience and the reason look to forums for other's personal experiences with their products. Just because your opinion varies from mine doesn't mean I'm going to call you wrong, it just means that your experiences are different that mine.

The OP asked, and I offered my opinion as a PROFESSIONAL installer. Why don't you give us your credentials. Have you trained at Club Car as I have? Do you have supporting documents to show that a radio will cause premature failure?
stang99x, Sergio is one of the most knowledgeable individuals on anything electrical, especially when it comes to CC and far from combative. My guess is he's either an engineer for CC or an Electrical engineer. If neither of the two then he IS still one of the most knowledgeable members here on anything electrical, proof is shown ample times with the advice he has given to BGW members.

And what do you call a mechanic that graduated last in his class??? A mechanic! So just because you've worked on hundreds of thousands as you state to prove your OPINION... it's still your opinion. TahoeDawgZ71, Sergio and ScottyB are three of the most knowledgeable members here and anyone reading this thread or future threads hopefully will remember this.
It reminds me of an older gentleman that would always state he's been driving cars before I was born... don't tell me about cars he'd say. Funny thing was he asked for help when he needed his tire changed... he didn't know how... go figure...

I knew a person once in another life that worked on lets just say equipment. In his opinion he was the best at what he done. Funny thing I stayed busy following behind him correcting his screw ups. But he was the best tech in our shop, he could work on more equipment than any of us could in a day.

Never did tell him different.

Scubabud...

Ditto on Sergio...the gentleman definitely knows his stuff. I've found him on numerous occasions to be helpful without a cavalier or condescending attitude. I'm in awe of his knowledge of CC electrical issues and willingness to share. Gentlemen like he (and several others...) are not paid for dispersing their knowledge and experience but do so on a recurring basis. I'm thankful for their presence on this board...

I have thirty years of experience owning an auto electrical shop selling batteries, rebuilding all types of rotating DC electrical items, building custom battery cables, and helping people. This forum presents a knowledge base that is unique even with my background and I have learned a lot from all of the postings and inter-actions that occur daily. We are very lucky to have so many very knowledgable people willing to invest their time to help others sort out their issues. Let's keep it civil so we don't blow the good thing we have.

That would be the train of thought you'd think you'd find most places. The problem is, that some folks don't understand that. Provide someone with some credentials and get blasted. Get someone who can read online books and copy/post the information they find and call them an expert.

And as to Scuba, I'm well aware of the three you posted. I refer people to Revolution on here quite frequently...and I refer quite a few of my own customers in my online sales store to him for items I don't sell. I don't think I'd send MY customers to anyone that I didn't think would do them right. I have even bought couple things from him in a pinch. He is the single most respectable vendor on this forum in my opinion. Since one of the other two decided to follow me around to all my posts and hound me I have no use for him. And the other I don't care for either. I haven't posted anything negative about either, however I have simply stated and defended my opinion from my experience in this business. Funny thing, my inbox was full of people asking me not to leave this forum as they value my input. I give my time here with no desire or need for a return of anything. I'm here solely to help those who need it, be it because they don't want to pay someone, can't pay someone or just like doing it themselves. I don't ask anything for my time, but I would expect a little respect. I get blasted all day long on here and then god forbid I make a comment that seems to be directed at at anyone else and somehow I'm the bad guy. I get told to read the rules (which I have) and even though I stayed within them and in my interpretation the others have not, it's still me that gets hammered for it. I really don't care either way, I don't have to do any of this. I started using this forum because JohnnieB is the single most knowledgeable person I have seen when it comes to cart electrical. He has many times shown to be better than most vendors are, and I am not to proud to say he is more knowledgeable than I. With his help I have solved issues that I otherwise would not have been able to solve. Thus I am well aware of who knows what on here and where a person can turn to find it. I have never seen him selling anything on here, and I rarely see people simply tell him thanks for his effort.

Stang if you read the rules i wouldn't of asked you to. because you didn't understand them if you did. and when you start calling members TROLLS and calling other members The Peanut gallery that is a true professional.

I'm pretty sure that the most common word used to describe those who follow others around and negate every single post is troll. Sorry if I'm not up to date on internet lingo, I spend more of my time working on carts than playing on the net. The peanut gallery is commonly used to refer to the "rest of the crowd" in terms used by my generation. Perhaps yours defines it differently. I wouldn't know as I don't ask people around here how old they are as it isn't really relevant to me. As to the info I post, it is all that I have learned and been taught by those in the industry, from the basic to best cart tech's whom I worked with and around over the years, and the manufacturer's where I trained. I'm unaware of a better way to learn, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't sitting here behind a monitor. You, just like anyone else, are fully entitled to your opinion. When I see someone tell someone something that I believe is more of a sales pitch than it is an effort to help them do something, yes I'm going to point it out. If you go out right now and look at 500 carts with lights, 475 are done without a reducer. The numbers don't lie, and the numbers show that reducers are not necessary. Perhaps you missed the other thread with the one year old reducer purchased from a vendor that seems to have failed. My point has always been simple, though others seem to want to complicate it. It is not necessary, but it is an option. It is not an option I use, nor is it used by other area tech here in Atlanta who work for some of the largest Cart sales, service and rental companies in the southeast. I know this because I trained with some of the best techs in this state and two other states. I know this because I know what sells from some of the largest vendors in the country. I know this because I install the kits. If it was mandatory, a light kit would come with it. Because it is not mandatory, light kits do NOT include it. Yes, the directions will suggest it, and in some cases even use text that says required. But that is nothing more than a corporate printout to cover their butts in the event of some failure. If you buy something that must have something else installed to work, it comes with it. If it can use another part, it is available for purchase on top of the needed parts and/or kit. You can supercharge your car and it will perform better without a doubt......but not everyone comes with it because it will work fine without.

Stang, you don't need to post you resume over and over and continually make others seem like they don't know what they are doing or saying, your remarks are constantly insulting. It would be best if you just responded to the person in need of help provide your experience and leave the hogwash out and stay on point then you'd probably would have more respect. We help others because of the passion of what we do, to even think you or anyone else should be compensated is ridiculous and many of us are professionals in one way or another but that isn't the point of this forum, is is free will to help those in need and to succeed is all the payment necessary. You obviously have experience as you made clear more than enough, just give the experience freely and move on, the respect comes later.

Well did you know that club cars come from the factory with a voltage reducer. That right there shows me your not the professional, that you have told us many times you are. And for the member that you called a troll, he has helped more members here at BGW than you ever will help. And i don't care who you trained with. In your post here at BGW shows me and others you don't know as much as you think you do. It might be time for you to start reading here at BGW and you will learn something from known professional that have helped thousands of BGW members. If you want to help out here at BGW fine, if you don't ,. I don't care. Show us your a professional and stop trying to tell us you are in your post. Have a nice day
