Default Winter Battery Storage

If I do not use my cart from November thru March should I bring my batteries in the house and keep them on a charger for those months?

Radarx, Welcome to BGW!

As long as you are in the lower 48, the thing to remember is that a fully charged battery will not freeze. That being said, the best thing to do is leave the batteries in the cart, and once a month drive it for 15 minutes or so and put it on the charger till it finishes. If access is an issue, there are pack maintainers available for around $100 that will trickle charge the abandoned pack all winter as long as the power is not interrupted. Removing the batteries is a hassle. Where is the cart stored?

Its stored outside at another location that I visit on certian weekends thru the winter months, Its not far away so I can get there about twice a month to drive it if needed to keep charge. I have electric there also and can keep the charge on it.

RADARX in my area where we have WINTER TEXANS most leave charger hooked up and have some one check batterys for distilled water level at least once a month, and check and make sure GFI or surge protector has not tripped. They also jack cart up and use cement blocks under frame so tires are off ground so no flat spots when back in fall, cover whole cart with breathable cover hooked to blocks.
