Well now you have me thinking.
When do I really need the 12V accessories?
When needed I could just lift the seat and connect the reducer cable.
Obviously flipping a switch would be easier.
But maybe too easy.
Analysis to paralysis trap.

I have one but needed to get it working for use this weekend, so had to cut corners for now.

You sound like you know what you are doing so good luck.
I did purchase a fuse block and will install it as time permits.
I am going to use the dis connector for this weekend event, but then work on a solution.

I appreciate your help.


Thanks

Yesterday, I swapped out wheels and tires. I had 10" wheels and 18.5" low profile tires and now I have different 10" wheels and 205/65 tires, which are 20.5" tall. They just fit and have yet to rub. My Precedent has dual action springs on back and a 1" spacer (lo pro lift) in front. I went from 19.5 MPH's stock to 24 mph's when I upgraded to an Alltrax controller and now 26 mph with taller tires.

The bulb is a 9004. They come in many wattages. The one that burned out was a 100/80 watt. A set of them is $64. I picked out a set of 65/45 watt for $22. I found the locking tabs on the driver side were broken. I hope the light stays in. The leads on the passenger side are short and a bit of a pain to reassemble.

Everything works just need to find and install the relay.
This is the relay I used. The yellow wire runs to the dash and is spliced into the wire on the ignition that is hot when the key is turned on.

Thanks!
I ordered the exact same part, it should come in today or tomorrow.

I also ordered a digital voltmeter to either replace or compliment the existing analog meter.

Just remember that you can get some bad burns from the amount of energy in the battery bank.

I ordered a cart cover from Amazon.

FLYMEI 4 Passenger Golf Cart Cover

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The image in the ad showed a cart with a seats and foot rest.

For $33 I figured I would check it out.

I installed it and it does indeed cover the whole thing.
There's a strap for across the bottom.

The material is pretty thin.
I think if we are careful it might last a number of installs and removals.
I put a tarp over the top of the cover.
Time will tell how it holds up.
