FAQ 2018-01-30T11:01:31+00:00


Here are some questions we get at Recreation Sport Carts.  Feel free to contact us if you have a question we haven’t covered. We might even feature it on our page!

I have an EZ-GO RXV and when I went to drive it, it just didn’t go? 2018-01-12T15:43:19+00:00

The EZ-GO RXV is a very good cart, but it is fully computer controlled which makes it difficult to diagnose without the proper tools. If any of the sensors/switches or even the backup alarm are not working then the computer will not let you drive the cart.  In most cases it is best to bring your cart in so that we can use our diagnostic tool to pinpoint the issue.

How can I make my electric cart go faster? 2018-01-12T15:42:10+00:00

The majority of electric carts are programmable from the factory, so we are capable of increasing the speed a little.  The maximum speed available will depend on the cart. If this is not sufficient then a new higher horsepower motor, higher amperage controller, and larger battery cables are required.

I want bigger wheels and tires on my cart without lifting it, how big can I go? 2018-01-12T15:41:17+00:00

Most stock carts can fit a tire with an overall diameter of 18.5”.  And with this size of tire you can easily fit a 12” diameter wheel.

How do I store my gas golf cart over winter? 2018-01-12T15:39:58+00:00

For most people it is unrealistic to remove all of the fuel from the tank and fuel system. So, we recommend that you add fuel stabilizer, available at your local automotive store, as per the instructions provided with the product.  We also recommend that you use a battery maintainer on the starting battery to prevent discharging and freezing.

What do I need to do to my electric cart when it’s not being used? 2018-01-12T15:39:13+00:00

If you are parking your cart for just 1-2 weeks, it is best to make sure it is fully charged before parking it and, if equipped with a run/tow switch, put it in tow/storage mode (This is not the case with all carts, specifically the EZ-GO RXV which must be left in run mode to prevent battery discharge). If you are leaving your cart for an extended period of time, for example, over the winter season, then we recommend that you also check the battery water levels and install a battery maintainer designed to work with the correct voltage.

Can I use regular tap water in my batteries? 2018-01-12T15:37:47+00:00

While tap water may not cause an immediate battery failure, any impurities in the water can interfere with the chemical reaction that is taking place inside the battery.  For optimal battery life and performance, it is recommended to use distilled water.

How often do I need to add water to my batteries? 2018-01-12T15:35:29+00:00

Water consumption in batteries is directly related to the battery usage and charging so the intervals in which water is required will vary for each customer.  We recommend that the battery water level is checked more frequently at the beginning – about every 2 weeks.  You will quickly learn how often water is needed.
