I'm running 26 mph but it wasn't cheap. A $1200 upgrade.

They came with the cart when I bought it and are a brand that I never saw before. So yes, it may be time for new batteries, but before you invest, make sure you are utilizing them in the optimum fashion. And then plug them in every night, and check your water levels at least once a month.
Please tell me the correct way to wire the reducer, I have ordered a 40/12
To power under cart led lights, I believe they are called Under Glow lights.
The cust service agent told me to wire the reducer pack positive from the first battery and pack negative on the last battery, 48 volts. Sounds correct to me but many times on this forum it has been said to not have any other wires sharing negative on the last battery, how should the 48 volt reducer be wired ?

It's hard to say without knowing what cart you have. General rule is to run your negative from B- on controller or the negative block located near the controller on most carts. That way the obc will read the current draw of your reducer from the battery pack allowing the obc to put the correct charge in the pack.

It would be better in the future to start your own thread with your question, that way your question will get noticed quicker.
