You Can’t Place Very Many Extra Electrical Accessories On Gas Golf Carts

You Can’t Place Very Many Extra Electrical Accessories On Gas Golf Carts

You can’t place very much electrical demands on the original small cranking battery of  gas golf carts. The small battery and generator were just not designed to accommodate very many electrical devices. We just came to the pain staking realization to this fact. Nothing like the school of hard knocks to teach us something that we already know. As many years we have been in the dc electrical rotating industry, you would think I would have known better. You can’t add very many electrical demands to a system that was originally designed to start the engine and power up head and tail lights.

25%, really? You're telling me that the air pressure inflation of my golf cart tires can effect the performance of the golf cart up to 25%! Nope, not me, I didn't say that but Ezgo did! You never think about the air pressure in your golf cart tire on a regular basis. Usually it’s a little to late for the damage is done by the time we notice something is wrong with the way the golf cart is handling. While I was on hold for Ezgo’s technical department the phone system auto attendant was playing technical tid bits while I was waiting. One of them kind of took me by surprise.

The average factory installed golf cart tire is 18X8.50X8 respectively. Depending on the ride that you are after the air pressure ranges from 18 psi for a softer ride up to 22 psi for a harder ride.
