I used the power washer with Purple Power cleaner in the soap tank.

Insurance - it is insured. Details are still being sorted out.

Same with Alltrax as well.

Keep us posted with how much responsibility Alltrax assumes (if any) in this event.

Will do Scotty...

When I checked with them on Friday Rich was working on the controller then and hoped to have his report finished by Monday. Says he'll call me on Monday to square everything up. So we will see.

So on another note, added this to mine... $10.00 at Wal-Mart for a B-C and a little silver paint...

Could be the best $10 you have spent in a while. I should do the same

It's a B & C, found it in the boating section not with the other fire stuff in the the home improvement area... It's marketed for PWC, Personal Water Craft.

Purple Power Cleaner is some awesome stuff. We used it to clean off the ladder on one our ladder truck one shift and it took off stuff a sandblaster couldn't touch. Glad to see you mounted your new powder cannon on your cart. Hope you never have to use it but just remember P.A.S.S. if you do. Point, Aim, Squeeze, & Sweep.

This thread has been a real education. Thanks for all the info. On the same subject, a couple of years ago when I upgraded my 96 CC to an DCX 400amp, plus all the rest, the dealer insisted I install the fuse which he provided. Now I'm looking at my 2008 CC and I'm wondering if CC has one somewhere that I can't see. Do I have to take the cover off and search or does anyone know if they have a built in LARGE CURRENT FUSE?

Most golf carts don't use fuses, they are value engineered.

Well heard back from Alltrax today....

The controller had multiple failed circuits, they had not seen one that bad in a while, also the solenoid looks like it had been welded for a brief moment as there is a small 2 mm vaporization mark on the contacts, but not enough to weld shut. One possible scenario was a low voltage situation, the reason they say that is they see the low voltage circuit fried, but the more we discussed the situation they have ruled that out.

Summary, two failed components, and they can't tell which caused which... they are leaning towards the controller causing the solenoid burn mark but ultimately just don't know. So in the end all they can confirm is multiple simultaneous failure points and have taken ownership for causing the failure and fire.

They have been fantastic to work with and they are standing by us which is more than I can say for many companies now days.

Kudos to Alltrax.

That is great news!

I'm glad nobody got hurt.
