This came off the GC and the seller kept it on there but this is all I got with the cart.
I'm not sure what brand of watering system that is. I would never own one and prefer using my eye once a month and filling as needed with a fill bottle like this.................

Yes, I bought one of them at NAPA years ago. They didn't have it in stock, and had to order it in...

I like it, but even with that, I did manage to overfill one cell one time. But that filler really does make topping off your batteries a 10 min job.

I use an 83 cent gallon of distilled water and a funnel and just check the water levels often and fill when necessary.

The charger does get hot and will eventually cut itself off if, for some reason, it can't fully charge the cart. When I first got mine, it would run for 16 hours and cutoff and it turned out I had a bad battery. The guy I bought it from swapped it for a good one and now everything is good. Once it gets to a certain voltage, it cuts off. How long that takes depends on how drained the batteries were before charging. Don't get in a habit if unplugging it mid-charge and driving it around - not good for the batteries.

I noticed the trick is to keep it perfectly level when the spout/tip is inserted into the battery fill hole. If you angle it it will allow it to fill higher then to the bottom of the fill hole well.

I got mine from my local auto parts store. They had it in stock but as mentioned some may have to order it in from their warehouse in a day or two. All auto batteries are maintenance free now so it's not a commonly sold part. They are usually $10-$20.

Thanks guys.

I put my cart on the charger last night and all seemed fine. The meter was past 15 amps but then droped back down to normal. So, I do feel better about charging it now with no issues. Let's just hope my batteries last a while even though they are older.
