Default Just a quick question

I am trying to become smarter on the electrical side of things but I bought a 36v to 12v 30amp voltage reducer to run my lights and radio/speakers(Future). I have the hot and ground going straight to the main pos and main neg of the battery pack. Is this okay or do I have something to worry about?

Thanks

The way you have it now the reducer will always be pulling power from your pack and will drain the batteries if left sitting. Does your reducer have a trigger wire for an on/off switch? If not, you can put one inline on the hot lead. It should be on a switch, so it doesn't constantly drain the pack...

Okay, I guess I will disconnect it from the batteries until I get a toggle switch.

I agree with Crash to use the key switch. That way when the cart is on the reducer is on, the cart is off, reducer is off...

Sounds good, I will do that. But just so I understand, I will take the lead off the main neg off the battery and wire that to the neg side of the key switch?
