|Instructions for connecting your heated clothing
The electrical system of your golf cart or mower directly powers your heated clothing. Your Gerbing's power plug battery harness connects your Gerbing's clothing to your battery. To use your clothing, first attach your power plug battery harness to your battery. Specific instructions for connection are listed below.
WARNING: Always turn off or disconnect the power plug battery harness when not in use.
Instructions for Connecting Power Plug Battery Harness to Battery
Instructions for Electric Powered 48-Volt System (six 8-volt batteries) Club Cars '96 and newer:
- Gas Powered 12-Volt Systems: Access your vehicle's battery.
Electric Powered 36 and 48-Volt Systems: Locate a bank of two batteries in a series circuit. You will be using two batteries to power your heated golf product by crossing the series circuit.
- Identify the negative wire of your battery harness, the wire without the fuse in-line.
- Put the bolt from the negative terminal through the eye connector on the negative wire.
- Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the positive wire to the positive terminal.
- Route the battery harness to the top of the seating area or to a Gerbing's accessory plug. Make sure the wires will not rub or be pinched between the frame and the seat.
- Let the battery harness plug hang six to eight inches out from under the seat when installing to a golf cart.
- Zip-tie, or use electrical tape, to safely attach the wire to the frame or other points on the vehicle to prevent the wire from moving.
- Tighten the battery terminals over the eye connectors.
- Electric Powered 36 and 48-Volt Systems: Rotate the power plug after extended use to help prevent battery wear.
Voltage Reducer Option for 48-Volt System
- Remove the plastic cover on the rear of the golf cart. Situated behind the batteries underneath the storage basket, locate the control box. The control box may have a cover that may also need to be removed to access posts.
- On the power plug battery harness locate the negative wire, the wire without the fuse in-line. Run this wire underneath the seat to the control box.
- Attach the negative o-ring from the power plug harness to the negative post on the control box. (Same post that the negative cable from battery #6 connects.)
- Identify the battery located 5th in the series situated underneath the driver's side and closest to the front of the cart.
- Attach the positive o-ring (with fuse in-line) to the positive post on the 5th battery in the series.
- WARNING: Must use 5th battery in series for proper voltage output (16 volts). Check with a voltmeter to ensure proper installation. Failure to properly install correctly may lead to damage to product resulting in a melt down or fire.
Another option for operating your heated golf products with a 48-volt cart
is to use a Voltage Reducer. A Voltage Reducer is wired into the entire bank
of batteries. It produces 12-volts of power, drawn evenly from
all of the batteries. A voltage reducer can be purchased through Buggies Unlimited.
48-Volt Club Car Precedent Model (four 12-volt batteries)
- Connect positive o-ring to the positive post on the 4th battery in the series.
- Ground negative o-ring from battery harness to the negative ground inside control box (B minus). This ground has the wire coming from the negative post on the 4th battery grounded here as well.
- Important: Must use 4th battery in series for proper voltage output (12 volts). Check with a voltmeter to ensure proper installation and voltage.
- NOTE: Most Precedent models are prewired for 12-volt headlights. You can also wire into the headlight system to obtain your 12-volt power source.
