I know it's not apples to apples but the Medalist in my signature runs 17 mph with the 36v motor, was about 14 mph before the 48v conversion. The DS in my signature was a resistor cart and ran about 10-11 mph before the 48v conversion, now it runs 22 mph. FWIW

yah thats what i got at hand.. just gotta figure out what wires to put where

Now back to this controller and charger thing

I had it charging yesterday and took it out for a cruise..probably covered about 12 miles on half a charge

Put it in the garage and i plan to charge it fully this weekend

This morning i poped up the seat and for grins i felt the panel the controller is on and it was luke warm .. not hot but deff warm

Whats the scoop with that.. think that tow run switch is the deal? i never unpluged it to see what the outcome was but if its not turning off will it be warm ?

I answered you via PM, but I'll answer it here as well. The controller should not heat up at all while the cart is not in use. Regardless of the tow/run switch position.

Well i forgot to check it this morning.. That switch was bad

I installed a volt meter and it was staying on no matter what .. replaced the t/r switch and it turns off now .. Got rid of the toggle switch also for the ignition and hooked it back to the key switch and we are good to go

had it on charge yesterday from about 3-10 unplugged it
checked the volt meter this morning and it was like 49 something.. pretty sure shes still gotta keep charging lol

Is the OBC bad or are you just unplugging it? Unless you are sure the OBC is bad, you need to plug it in and let it complete a full charge cycle. Meaning it runs until it shuts off automatically or ~16 hours and it times out.

Well im not sure if the OBC is bad but being im not sure if the charger will shut off i just unplug it when im gone

Hopefully tonight ill find out if it turns off on its own or at least this weekend but id rather not have batteries blow up on me or a charger burn up if it never shuts off

Lol! That will not happen. The OBC controls the charger, not that other way around. Without the OBC, the charger will not run. If you go to bed tonight and it is still running, they will not be bad in the morning. They will even force the amperage down as the charge at the plates build up and increases resistance. Just let it run till it cuts off. And I agree to not test it when you will not be there or back for a long period. It may go the full 16 hours and cut off.
