Default Forgive, I knew not what I was doing-I got a sick Ez Go

Good Evening- Last fall after Deer season, I left the Cart In Full charge.
I just got my first chance to get to the Farm- I wanted to go to
go turkey hunting- I put the charger on on friday evening- Got up early and NO GO- And Of course I did remember to bring my kit ( that I put together from your list)

Ok where do I start?
the cart is a medalist
i
The cart at first had a very low sound like slipping

Thanks
and I did have a checklist on this unit before I cooked hard drive

thanks Chris

Without a voltmeter you are pretty much sunk....like a hunter without a bullet. You will need to be MacGyver to fix it... Visually and physically check all of the wires for corrosion or rodent damage? If you don't find something to fix.... well????

well the charger probably never turned on, i will put my money on a low pack voltage so the charger didnt even kick on less than 34 volts, so you need to manualy charge the batts up, take 2 6v batteries at a time wire them in series and use a 12v car battery charger and charge them 2 at a time, do that 3 times cauz u have 6 6v batteries, then put all cables back on and try the charger, but but before you do any of that, you need to get a battery back reading find a volt meter

I did have another charger- A monster charger for fork lifts- I can switch from 12,24,36,48- I set it on 36 and let it charge for 14 hours- saturday afternoon till sunday morning- Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink- I have voltage meters at home , but forgot them for the farm.- Go ahead and laugh, my son got a big kick out of me doing that

Not laughing at all. A very valuable lesson learned I am sure.

This reminds me of something my Father and Uncle would say- Neglect your tools and they will neglect you!

I have been working so much lately I haven't had the chance to get down there- and now I failed the cart and the cart failed me- thats fair enough
It also reminded me, if ya cant run with the big dogs, stay on the porch-
I have to have both knees, left ankle, left shoulder and left hip replaced-
I definately sucks calling turkeys from the porch

Any idea what the amperage rating on that unit is? Don't want to slam the pack too hard!
