Default charge in "tow" or "run"?

Hi,
I just bought my first electric cart.
Hated to get rid of my gas one.
Anyhow, when charging my 48 volt club car, does it matter what position the "tow/run" switch is in?
Is it wired between the batteries and plug?
Does it affect the motor in any way while charging?

I can't seem to find anything under the search on this topic,
and of course, I have to book to refer to.

Thanks!!!!

I saw all the warnings about putting it in TOW for working on and all,
but couldn't find anything about charging.

Thanks for your help!!

That's good info! Is there a way to test the switch with a dvm to see which position it is in? I took mine out of the bracket it and reinstalled it later. I don't remember which position it was in. I haven't installed batteries yet.
