Default Taking my batteries out

Any special considerations as to unhooking or storing my batteries as I work on my cart?

If it is a series cart, disconnect the positive and negative main leads. If its an IQ, do the same, but also flip run/tow switch to tow.
And also make sure cart is in the off position...

Ok, the batteries are out and on my garage floor. Is there a timeframe I need to work in to avoid them discharging and decreasing the life? I have 4X12v, so I want to make sure they last as long as possible. I dont plan on having them out more than a couple of weeks.

If the batteries are fully charged, they should be fine for only a couple of weeks.
If not, you may need to top each one off

Yup, they are all fully charged. Thanks for the help.

Some say do not set the batteries directly on the concrete floor, place a board underneath them. I know this was true years ago, but with today's batteries I am not sure if it matters.

I do not think that holds true today with the new bat cases. At least according to the bat company I got mine from.

With today's plastic battery cases, this absolutely does not hold true.
It is fine to leave a battery sitting on any surface...
