Projects are projects. I also rebuilt a cart that was in 45’ of water for 4 days. Everything electrical needed to be rebuilt or replaced except for the OBC which did survive. The seat cushions are still wet after a year. Was this a good idea, maybe not, but I did end up with the cart I wanted and with the components that I would have changed anyway to give the performance I wanted.
PS. At the end of the day I have 4500.00 invested. Oh buy the way the cart was given to me………

My thread will give ya an idea of what you're in for.. I got my cart a month after the storm, the only electrical parts that survived were the batteries and the reverse buzzer.. The batteries finally went tits up this spring..

Plan on replacing every inch of wire on the cart.. The salt water is insidious it NEVER stops corroding the wires from the inside out.. All of the electronics will be toast.. Most of these carts were like mine, plugged into the charger and plugged into 110V power when they went under.. The mix of AC & DC current and salt water made short work of killing all the solid state parts..

To date, I have a bit over $3500 sunk in "Ike", and still have to get a paint job..

one other thing that is looked over all the time is the battery tray if thats what you want to call it........anyways they get really nasty if you don,t keep it clean i have seen them so bad they break and your batts, hang an inch above the ground the only thing holding them in is the cables and the other batts resting on each other......so go over that part of the cart real well, clean the snot out of it and if its that bad than rebuild it you can use metel bedframe its perfect cut to fit and weld or bolt in.......i can just imagine how bad saltwater eats that frame so i would look over every inch of it and if you can while cart is tore down sandblast it just make sure you have a good frame to work with before you start dumping your money into it do not overlook any of the stress points and critical areas.......good luck with it.........................

decided to get rid of the regen and go with series. question- can I still use the 48 volt charger without the onboard computer? I understand that the computer turns the charger off and on. Can it be bypassed and add a timer? It has the round receptacle with three terminals.

Just a heads up on salt water damaged CC's. In recent months 2 carts in my area were found with major frame cracks and many were in places where CC normally doesn't crack? In both cases they had been let sit without rinsing off for months and one for over a year before being rinsed and torn down so maybe its possible that salt water may have effect on brittleness of aluminum??? Or is it just some thing else?
Also the one over a year also had cracks running through front hub on one side allowing it to open up enough to lock up all new parts including bearings, seal, cover cap and spin spindle, this is some thing I have never seen before without bad dry bearings etc?
If I had one of the hurricane carts I would keep close check on frame etc.

If you want to dump the CC OBC, sell the CC charger and go with a good aftermarket automatic charger.. Putting a timer on the CC charger will just end up shortening the life of your batteries by either under or over charging them..
