Taking Care of Your Batteries During Winter Storage

by ShopEZGO Bloggers on 2/18/2014 2:50:00 AM


For owners of electric E-Z-GO vehicles, it is important to continue to service the batteries throughout prolonged winter storage. This blog post covers just a few basic but essential tips for golf car owners that addresses several common customer questions. 

  • For winter storage, batteries must be clean, fully charged and disconnected from any source of electrical drain.
  • For all vehicles, set the key switch to "OFF". For electric RXV vehicles, make sure the 'Run/Tow' switch is set to the "Run/Storage" position; if left in the "Tow" position, it will drain the batteries. For electric TXT vehicles, the "Run/Tow" switch should be in the "Tow/Maintenance/Storage" position; if left in the "Run" position it will drain the batteries. For both vehicles the 'Run/Tow' switch is located under the passenger seat. 
  • As with all electric vehicles, batteries must be checked and recharged at a minimum of 30 day intervals or required as needed. You do not need to have your vehicle continuously plugged in and charging over the duration of long term storage.
