Question will it work?

I've switched some old EZgos to 3- 12v for general use carts and had good luck. I now have a 82 DS Club I was going to switch also, but forgot that reverse is on 18 volt. With the 3-12v, I can connect reverse at 12v or 24v.
I can't figure out by looking at the diagrams if it would hurt anything putting 24v thru reverse. I'd think 12 v would not be enough voltage, tho it runs on 18v, which seems low to me.
Has anyone done this or have any ideas other than I just shouldn't do this?

thanks in advance, the knowledgeable guys on this site have helped many times!

Definitely not 12v, there is not a good justification for possibly damaging 1 battery.

I think between 24v and 36v depends if you have a need or tendency to go fast in reverse.

If you run the reverse at 36v and do a lot of slow speed driving in reverse, you will put a lot of heat in the coil assembly.

So my preference is 24v for a good compromise.

Put it on 36v if you want. You'll just have full speed reverse.

I have a resistor cart with 6-6V battery setup and I've been running 24 Volt reverse for years... I like the faster reverse.

thanks for the replies. I'm going with the 24 volts, the regular reverse was a little slow anynow.

Talking Re: will it work?

Yep! I got reverse on 24 v and it works fine. With the cart not having a top and the weight of 3 batteries,, this little thing spins the tires easily taking off. I LIKE it!
