Florida is home to people from all over the world. A vacation destination, it is a primetime area for the winter months when the rest of the country seems to be bogged down in harsh winter weather. However, the sun is shining and the temperatures are rising which means that it is about time for some of our tentative residents to start packing and begin their journey home. Leaving is more than packing your suitcases, bolting your door, and locking the windows. Are you sure that all of your Florida vehicles are stored properly. Golf Carts are one of the most used and, sadly, abandoned vehicles due to improper storage. Before you pack up and bid farewell this Spring, take some time to look through our quick tip list to ensure your vehicles safety and longevity.
Golf Cart storage is something that is often overlooked but, in reality, it is just as important to take care of when planning a long leave. The most critical and expensive part of your electrical golf cart is definitely your battery. Before you leave, be sure that your batteries are fully charged and disconnected from the charger. Store them in an unheated, uncovered area for the duration of your leave. Since we are no stranger to Florida heat, it is imperative that your golf cart’s battery is stored in a cool area to avoid overheating and damage. The recommended tire pressure for your stored vehicles is 20 PSI. Also, make sure that your parking break is not latched when you leave.
Storing your golf cart doesn’t have to be a stressful task. Follow a few simple steps and suggestions and when you return to your southern home your vehicle will just need a few tweaks and checks and you will be ready to hit the golf course. As always, contact Gator Sports with any maintenance or repair concerns!
