Default best option for SOC for RXV ?

My neighbor recently bought a 2013 RXV with 4- 12V bats...
What is the best option and source (easiest install) for a SoC or battery voltage meter?

Also...The cart came with US batteries and a watering system...are plain battery cell caps available?

I have a Datel DMR20-10-DCM-R-C it's very accurate and was made in the USA. Easy to install.

Thanks...really looking for something that is plug & play if possible...I have a TXT DSC cart but I am entirely ignorant about RXV carts...

Anyone know about battery caps for US batteries?

Install the SOC run a wire to the main positive battery. Run another wire to the main negative battery and your done. Meter will always be on but it doesn't hurt anything. Very simple diy job.

If you want plug-n-play, you will have to get the ezgo meter. Notice it at the far left in the pic, round gauge next to key.

People in the know here only use digital readout SOC's. Bar graphs and analog meters are not very accurate. When troubleshooting these carts you need to know the correct voltage.

Thanks...I was wondering about that...I think I saw the meter during my initial searches and then in the pic...

Can I assume that the unused molex type connector I felt hanging near the back of the key switch is where it connects? (i.e., plug and play)?

And all that is required is boring a hole for the meter?...Is the meter sufficient? is there any difference between this one and the one above? https://www.amazon.com/612314-State-.../dp/B00N8TKHH6

This is for an older gent/couple and he is not mechanically inclined...Although I will bore the whole for the meter I am hesitant on modifying or even working on this RXV cart...if it was mine I would not hesitate but for this owner I'd rather not...

The SOC meter that cgtech spoke of is actually fairly reliable. It's just a display unit for the controller to use to give its calculated state of charge. The controller tracks power consumption during use and power input to the batteries during charging with a fairly high degree of accuracy. I like DVM type displays as well, but the RXV indash SOC guage is pretty decent.
