Default Re: Battery Condition

1st disconnect your main pos of #1 battery and neg of #6 battery......than your safe..........as for maintaining you want to do this on at least a monthly basis if you can,t do it more...........check cells for water if needed use distilled water only and just cover the lead plates by 1/8 of an inch, than pull twist each cable to make sure they are tight and cable dosn,t come out of end..............cleaning cable ends and battery terminals you want shiny like new and all connections very tight......check cables at F&R switch and at motor........if you do this stuff ( approx 20 minutes of work ) you,ll get the most out of youyr batteries..............and by keeping up with them theres no need to spray any gunk on them you,ll be able to see things much better without gunk in the way.......if you have to use anything to clean just use baking soda and water wiuth a wire brush or substitute the baking soda for a can of coke that will also clean things up pretty good....................................

Default Re: Battery Condition

Appreciate your comments. I have cleaned and rinsed all of the batts and the entire underseat area. Nice and clean. The batts have been kept pretty clean and they have a spray protectant (black) on all of the connections.
I purchased a Hydrometer, wire brush, baking soda and a battery filler. I also have 3 gallons of distilled water, so I think I am in pretty good shape for maintaining them. I already had a voltmeter and my friend has a load meter.
I plan on picking up 4 more T105's from the golf pro tomorrow. That will give me a full set of them although they are not new they are in pretty good condition. Once I have them installed and charged, I will run some tests to see just how good they are. I do have the option to pickup 6 US2200 batteries also if the Trojans are not up to snuff.

I am charging each battery prior to installing in the cart, that way they will all have been fully charged.

I really appreciate all of the advise that you folks have offered.
Thanks again, I will report back when I have some new info.
Dick

Well I have the Load meter in hand and the third thing it asks is what mode,
CCA nope, CA or Amp/hr. I assume it should be A/H but how many?
Any suggestions?
