Virtually every golf course in America depends on the use of motorized golf carts. Although electric golf carts are generally very dependable, they still need to be properly maintained. Here are some important maintenance tips for the owners of a battery-powered golf cart.
Inspect the lights
The brake lights, taillights, turn signals, and headlights all need to be in working order. This is especially true for the street-legal golf carts. Most faulty lights are caused by either a bad bulb or a blown fuse.
Low tire pressure forces an electric golf cart’s motor to consume too much of the battery’s energy supply. Always check the tire pressure with a digital gauge prior to driving the golf cart. A leaky tire can usually be traced to a puncture or cut.
In order to work effectively, golf cart batteries need to be fully recharged on a regular basis. Deep cycle batteries also need to be periodically refilled with distilled water. If you notice the presence of wet spots under the battery, this is a key indication that the battery is leaking fluid. When selecting a replacement battery, remember that wholesale golf cart batteries are typically less expensive. To ensure the longevity of a golf cart battery, the terminals need to remain free of corrosion at all times. Placing electrical grease around the battery terminals is a great way to prevent oxidation.
Mirrors and windshield
Dirty windshields and mirrors can dramatically impair a driver’s visibility. Before heading out to the course, clean your golf cart’s windshield using a mild glass cleaner and a lint-free towel.
Check the steering wheel
The steering system is one of the most neglected components on a golf cart. Occasionally greasing the steering system will certainly help to minimize the amount of wear and tear placed on the steering column.
Examine the brakes
The braking system is the most important safety feature on a golf cart. If the brakes begin to squeal or experience a decrease in performance, they need to be examined as soon as possible.
Before attempting to travel long distances, take the time to test the gears on your golf cart. Be sure that the transmission selector switch has been completely pushed into the correct slot before calling a repairman to fix the issue.
Do you like to get away for a weekend on the lake to do some fishing, or just to go for a cruise in your boat? After a long week of work and hustle and bustle, few things compare to loading your boat on the back of your trailer and towing it behind your truck as you ride off to the lake. But before you can do that, there are several things you should do in order to prepare your truck and boat for a weekend on the lake.
The first step in preparing your boat and truck is to make sure that you have the right size trailer that can fit the boat size on it, and also make sure your truck is able to carry the weight of the boat without any problems. When you load the boat onto the trailer, you’ll want to take care that you do not damage any parts of the body or engine. The boat should be stored away under a protective covering when it isn’t in use.
The second part is to make sure that the boat’s engine components have been checked including gasoline, oil, spark plugs, cooling system, transmission fluid, propeller, engine belts, and other important parts. When you check the engine, perhaps the most important part is your electrical system as you will need the power of your battery in order to start your boat. When you put the boat into storage, it’s usually wise to remove the battery from the boat and store it in a room of safe temperatures. You will want to check to make sure it hasn’t been corroded, running low on juice, and the wires are still intact.
If you need new batteries for your boat, you can select from a wide variety of marine batteries that are designed for heavy use. The most commonly used batteries are deep cycle batteries, which are known to have a more constant flow of electricity into your boat engine for prolonged use and to add more power. These batteries also come with a 1-year warranty so if they don’t work, you can return them and get a new one free. Don’t leave your boat without power, buy a battery from General Power Batteries so you can spend quality leisure time out on the water.
Of the many types of batteries, marine batteries undergo some of the hardest working conditions. They are often put to the test over long hours of heavy vibration and high horse power – all without being recharged daily.
