Default Is Problem charger or batteries RXV not complete 18 holes

My 2009 RXV 48 volt golf cart with one year old C1275 Crown batteries runs out of power after 14-15 holes. QE charger charges batteries to around 12.65 volts and pack voltage of around 50 volts. Should I suspect batteries or charger the problem or how can I check. I am couple hundred miles from EZ Go dealer.

Pack voltage should reach around 59 - 60 volts before shutting off, and 12 hours later it should settle down to about 51 - 52 volts. If not, the charger is not fully charging the pack.

If concluded it is charger what Charger is recommended for the RXV EZ Go golf cart 48 volt ?
Is it possible to try and check if it is charger by charging batteries with manual 12 volt battery charger?

Put a DVM on your battery pack while it is charging. Keep a close eye on it and see how high it charges the batteries. Then after 12 hours see what your pack voltage is.

If your DVM has "peak hold", use that, to see how high it gets before the charger cuts off.

Do you have lights or other accessories ????

If so --- are accessories connected to 1 battery ????

this causes the "accessory" battery to be undercharged. Battery cart is only as good as weakest battery.

I have one on my cart, and have many amongst friends and neighbors.
