    Tom, message 2 of 2

    I tend to do my testing with a volt meter (not hydro) so I do not have to take covers off, etc. For example, take the cart out for a ride, drive it around for 20 mins+, as soon as you get home, take the voltage of each battery, looking for one that does not match. Years ago one of my packs the voltage was 8+, 8+, 8+, 8+, 8+, 6 (see a problem?)

    On my volt meter I also have alligator clips. A nice test is clip a voltmeter onto one battery. Put the go pedal to the floor and look at voltage drop to see how low it goes. See if one battery stands out as really different; it will be obvious.

    If this seems like too much, I would just call up Battery Boys and see what they charge you to check the pack.

    It is possible a pack only lasts two years based on maintenance, i.e., level of discharge on each use, during summer, water, etc, etc...

    Hope that help. Good luck.

    Hi Tom.

    I had to split this message into two as it was too many characters <lol>

    I still love reading TOTV, I do not mind the negativity, it is easy to ignore. I do not post much anymore because someone usually have already said what I think and typically say it better than I could write it anyway <grin>.

    I am just a guy that has learned about battery packs because I love electric carts. I am not a professional, so caveat you...if this was my cart...

    First question is does the charger come on? Does the needle move over to the right, does the charger stay on? Nothing else matters if the charger is not charging <grin>

    Next I would check the voltage of the pack after the pack is charged (charger has run for hours and shuts off, WAIT a few hours after charger shuts off). The pack should be over 50 up to 50.9.

    this is message 1 of 2

    Hi Tommy! Good to hear from you! Yes "3" is still going strong, but we've been on a three week hiatus while the other 2 guys travel. We start up again at the end of the week. We'll be playing a lot of private parties in Nov and Dec, quite a bit at the 2 City Fire Restaurants, and we are at Lake Sumter Town Square on Dec 21. Also at City Fire Brownwood on New Years Eve. Busy schedule. But, I am leaving the band at the end of the year. I started the Pops Chorus early this year, and I have numerous opportunities to direct and perform in musical theater productions, including "Les Miz" next March. So something had to give, and the amount of gigging with "3" was really wearing me out, so that lost out. They have already found my replacement, a guy named Ray Lamia who sings with the Blues Bros Tribute Band and with a new band called Flipside (started by the "4" guitarist, Gary Senator). So "3" will continue on quite well without me. Hope to run into you one of these days!

    Hi Tom, I noticed from a recent post that you have River Rock on your property. Where do you have it? Do you have it on your front sidewalk and if so does it begin at the edge of the driveway or is the whole driveway done also? We are moving down permanently (Yea!) the first of December and would like to dress up the entry to our house in Virginia Trace. I would be interested in seeing either a picture or your actual result if possible. Thanks for your time, Rick Gauthier

    I just noticed the question. I got it after market it was about 50 each and I got 4 for my 4 seater. I just think it is safer.
