Now, it's on to installing a ground bus bar ( I have 5 extra gounds) and a 48v bus bar, (my drive lights are 48v and there is the feed to the inverter),
then I want to install a 4 way flasher for the yellow LED parking lights in the OEM headlights fixtures and the LED brakes lights, plus the...
I physically removed the OBD and made a frame out of 1 inch by 1/4 thick aluminum plate stock and I drilled and bolted it together in the shape of the letter 'H'.
I bolted the charger to this frame, then bolted all of it, to the rail, where the OBD was originally mounted. Just did have room next...
Thanks, the only question that I have is the charger says it is setup for line drop losses of 9 feet on the charging feed wiring. Does this mean I can't shorten the feed or if I do, I can re-specify the line loss length?
Just a follow up, I have mounted the charger and have it up and running. A piece of cake. The app is a little odd in the fact that it's bluetooth and you do not have to associate with your phone, it just works

Well, I purchased the:
Lester Summit Series II Battery Charger 650W 36/48V With Club Car 3-Pin Molded Plug, 8.5 Ft. DC Cord
Just received the charger today and I have already started in by removing the old OBD.
I removed the OBD...
That's good to know because I live on a moderate hill and the kids love to fly out of the drive like nuts and I know if they don't let up, the cart will keep going but if they do see traffic and let up, the regen will help to slow down the cart
Also, if I understand the duties of the OBD, it is more for fleet operators anyway. The only two items that I will be giving up is the regen feature and and the 'Cart Disabled When Charging' feature.
I understand that I'll need to join the blue and white leads from the old wiring harness as well...
I have come to the conclusion (by price shopping) that the OBD is just as expensive as a new charger and with a new OBD you would still have two areas to fail in the future. The same OBD issues and the same charger issues.
New OBD $300.00 plus
I have had a this charger recommended:
True but then you would need a timer that runs each day, right? To maintain the batteries.
Also, if the charger is starting each day, how do you make sure it is only doing a float charge and not pushing the voltage over 60 volts?
When I run the jumpered charger, it does drop down to 5 amps but...
