Hard Wire 48 Volt Battery Charger Yamaha G-22 Golf Cart


New Member
The campground I stay at has 20 Yamaha G-22 electric golf carts as rentals. They have asked me to find out if they can hard wire the charger directly to the batteries? The problem is the customers / renters wreck everything. I know the battery charger white wire to the positive + and black to negative - but on this cart where does the ground wire go from the charger?

ok are you saying you want to keep the charger on board all the time? like under the seat? or what? im sorry but i think im missing what your saying here. and if the carts are getting torn up a bunch it might not be to cool to put the charger onboard permanantly, or am i not getting what you are trying to do?

It's possible to hardwire the chargers but in a rental application, the last thing you want is the chargers exposed to the renters.
They'll kick them, spill stuff on them and you will have a tough time washing the cart with the attached charger. Rain is another consideration as well as using another charger for a cart when one fails.
All round I would say it's not a great idea.
