Default Charging 48 volt 2002 CC IQ

I have purchased a Club car DS 2002 IQ. 6- New-8 volt Batteries
When I return home in the spring my cart will be stored in a building with 30 or more carts at our RV park.
I have read threads regarding proper storage, we have someone that will be on site, my question is if I can have someone plug in the charger every couple weeks, will it charge best in the TOW position or should it be left in RUN or does it matter?
Would it be just as good to disconnect the batteries after it has been fully charged?
Thanks in advance

it doesnt really matter all that much, but i always charge the iq cars(ds and precedent) in the tow position. every couple weeks getting someone to plug the charger in will help keep them cycled cause they will discharge somewhat. just be sure to make sure the water in them is just above the plates and you should be fine. if you ever need to do a quick charge on your cart....you can take case off the charger and disconnect the relay and jumper those wires together.....and plug it in. do so only for a short time though....20 minutes to thirty minutes or so, then hook back up the correct way. it will give the batteries enough juice to charge on their on without the bypass.

TOW position for storage. Leave charger plugged in. The OBC will turn the charger on every 14 days to replenish the charge.

The charger will have to be unplugged and plugged back in to reset it.......it won't come back on,on its own.

Why do so many people argue. If you have questions just ask. The charger WILL come back on after 14 days just as Tahoe said.

From CC manual:

"Leave battery chargers plugged in during storage. The on board computer (OBC) will automatically activate the charger when necessary."
