Good to hear you are sorting this out. I'm sure you can make this work with what you have.
The chargers are tough and will take whatever abuse your sister will dish out minus wet and dirty conditions... Some protection will have to be maintained and so will some ventilation at your install location. David will be relieved to read this, by they way it is scottyb not scott.

OK Scottyb I am from up north and anyone who has name like Billy or Scotty etc.. just gets dropped to Bill or Scott my mistake sorry. I am looking at mounting the Charger in the Rear Bag Well but I am a little concerned about the ACID fumes when the enclosure is down especially what I am thinking is to lit it on a Shelf with a front that removes clear Plexiglas and a top that is enclosed then opening up the sides for vents and a exhaust fan just like my Big Boat uses for Gasoline fumes only letting the 12 volt fan run the complete charging cycle that way it is vented should get plenty of air movement won't overheat and will stay dry. I Am open to any ideas you might have
thanks again for the information. K C

You may be over thinking this project. Kiss is my rule. I have seen these chargers mounted under the seat for years still working.

KC . . the "jumper" you soldered, is that bypassing the OBC circuit or is it at a different location in the charger?

I soldered the connection that has the crimp on stake connection that goes to the black box or what ever it is I did not move or change it I just made it so It won't come apart
I just got home the charger is showing 0 on the meter still humming and the battery charge indicator is still in the yellow so I don't know if it actually charged anything I don't have time now to mess with this but I am pretty dang sure that the charger did not do anything I was getting 50 1/2 Volt total reading before the so called charge and the same thing now when I get time I am going to take pictures of the inside of the charger the inside of the battery area and post them we can start from the beginning I guess I will go through all of the motions that Dave said to do again and go from there But I am thinking I need to just go get the new Battery's !!!!!!! NOW it is a hard decision on what Battery's to buy Dave you told me that Club Car is not using Trojan now so what are they using and or what battery would you buy if it was you doing it I don't want cheap I put some new 6 volt Sam's club in the other cart but that is for resale this is for keeping and please don't say you don't have a preference.

I had this EXACT thing happen to me today at work. It ended up being a bad battery. An internal short in the battery to be exact. Voltage showed 60.5 with charger plugged in. But ZERO on the ammeter. One of the batteries was crap. Replaced it, problem solved. The only variable in this situation is the fact that this car wouldn't run, but yours will.

Try this, get a jumper wire with two alligator clips, one on each end. Clip one end to the stud on the fuse that is "BOLTED" to the charger receptacle, not the yellow rubber boot fuse, but the one's that bolted to it. Hook the other end of the wire to the MAIN NEGATIVE battery post and see if you don't get some sort of response from your charger. Let me know.

Ok I will give it a shot I found the Trojan Battery's in Cincinnciti Oh but that is 260 mile round trip=$60 in fuel so $10 a battery versus getting something local I will look for some Crown or U S but I am not sure of sellers in Louisville or close. I will let you know about the jumper tomorrow Thanks K C

Dave I did as you asked and got what I expected because it creates a dead short but it did make the charger go to full charge mode so what is the verdict sick charger/sick OBC/or sick operator or none of the above and just Crap battery's
KC
I forgot to ask ScottyB you said that you have seen plenty of carts with the charger mounted under the rear area so my question to anybody is do you have any pictures of this type of charger mounted on the Cart it would be a great help for me I have never seen one.
