Hey white , do not want to criticize anyone , BUT
just remember Batteries are the life of the cart , so spend the extra $$
next time and buy the hydrometer , get the one that has the #'s on it.
A ".1" here and a ".1" there make a lot of difference , same way with meters , get the digital !

Nuff said !

Took pot. off last night and cleaned contacts with scotch brite. It looked fine to me, I have seen some bad looking pics on here of some so i don't think mine was that bad. It looked like the bottom of the wiper was making more contact than the rest of the wiper. anyway, i put it back on and it does seem to have a little more take off power than it did. Is their adjustments for the wiper, so i can make the whole wiper make contact? Oh, it is going all the way to the last contact @ wot. Thanks

figured out how to adjust wiper contact. i now have the wiper making nearly full contact all the way around. i retested all batteries on full charge and they all have 8.7v give or take a tenth. total battery pack reads 52v. cart seems to have most of or all the power back now. wanted to update everyone. according to the maintenance manual the wiper needs to have at least 30% contact. i feel like i have at least 60 or 70%. could this have made my cart loose power? it was probably making only about 10% before

It could have ... keep working on it until it has 95- 100% contact.. less and it will burn and pit the contacts
