Always ground to the battery on electric carts. That's what they told me...

Tony is right, never never, ground to the frame on an electric cart.... There are some expensive components which are not fused and should they become accidently grounded they will fry on your ground circuit.

just wondering...do any cart manufacturers use frame grounds?? Is this for an electrical current/corrosion reason(I forget the term...electrolysis??) .

I think it depends on the charger and if it has a float mode. I think some charges will come on and turn off as needed. What brand charger is it?

Cheers
