Summer season is almost upon us, which means there won’t be much golf for quite some time. No golf means the golf carts won’t be too operational as well. Most people store their golf carts by parking in their homes, but did you know that your golf cart can break down even when it’s standing stationary in one place.
In this blog, we’ll explain how to safely store your golf carts in the summer season and prevent it from breaking down.
The place you park your golf cart is one of the most important aspects of storage. The parking spots need to be covered, and the golf cart should not be exposed to sunlight, excess moisture, or rain. Place a cover over the golf cart to protect it from dust and other elements.
Make sure the golf car is parked in neutral rather than forward or reverse gear.
Checking the Battery
Now, this is another important part that can’t be skipped. When you’ve parked your golf cart in the parking spot intended for it in summer, charge the battery to full, and turn it off.
Check the connectors on the battery. If the connectors are dirty, they must be cleaned and must be kept clean throughout. Any sort of grime or dust can’t be left on it.
The water level of the battery has to be checked frequently. The lead terminals need to be submerged in water at all times for the battery to keep performing at optimal levels.
Disconnect the Charger
After the charger is fully charged, disconnect the charger and store it in a safe place. Your battery won’t need charging if it’s switched off and the car is stationary
Lift the Cart
If you already have it, good enough. If you don’t, get a golf cart jack suitable for your golf cart to lift it when storing it for the summer. This is because keeping the golf cart stationary all summer will result in the weight of the golf cart on one part of the tires, creating a flat spot and causing the tires to lose their shape. To keep your tires safe, raise the car a little over the ground.
