Every time I see the thread title, the first image is of an outside lineman's hot-stick.

You shouldn't be thinking of a lineman's hot stick!

After a fair amount of thinking, and knowing how much trouble hauling the charger around and how often that just hauling them around they give trouble, that water proof onboard charger seems to be the way to go for almost everyone...........

Scottyb, I vote YES ! ! ! !

I would consider purchasing the onboard charger at some point in my upgrades.
If installed does it eliminate the possibility to charger with the standard charger?

You could still use the OEM OBC/charger.

I just had an idea about that, by-pass the OBC lockout and power the OBC from the Tow/Run switch.

On the precedents at the OBC 6-pin connector:
Cut the Red wire, the side going into the harness gets taped and not used.
Cut the Blue wire, the side going into the OBC gets taped and not used.
Splice together the White wire with the Red going into the OBC and the Blue going into the harness.
That way the OBC will not interfere with the other charger and it will not lockout the cart.

If You ever need to use the OEM charger, just tun the tow/run to tow for a minute (no controller capacitors so the OBC will reset in seconds), flip back to run and charger it.

The OBC will default to dV/dT algorithm since it just got reset, so the charge condition of the pack as calculated by the OBC would not matter.
