Golf Cart: How easy is the unit to install?
Professional installation is recommended but can be accomplished by a skilled owner. A hole to accommodate the airbox needs to be cut from the roof (template provided).
The unit drops onto the roof and is sealed by foam and silicone gel and mounted using 4 bolts. The water lines and power line, contained within a single harness, are run from the unit to the reservoir and battery. The harness contains two water pipes, one to feed the unit with water, the other to return water from the unit to the remote reservoir, as well as the 12V power cable.
On golf carts, the loom runs over the top of the roof and down one of the roofs supports into the cart body. We also provide a unit where the harness runs under the roof, especially clean when you have a headliner.
For golf carts, there are many different roof types out there, so the strength of the roof, curvature of the roof, and where the mounting bolts are to be located need to be analyzed. There are multiple mounting bolt patterns though so there are options to work with virtually any roof. If your roof cannot hold a 25lb weight, support brackets need to be added on the underside of the roof, but most roofs are fine.
The harness runs towards the back of the roof and generally to the left down the rear left roof support strut and into the body of the cart. Depending upon your cart a 1” hole may need to be cut to allow the harness to pass through the body. T
he harness then needs to be connected to the reservoir and 12V power converter. There are two types of reservoirs, an 8L model that fits under the seat where the batteries are located (if you have space) and a 5L model that is usually mounted under the left rear wheel-well and connected through the body to a “gas-cap” style remote fill. The water pipes then need to be connected to the reservoir and the 12V power cable to the converter.
