Default Charger in bagwell

Do any of you guys Cary the charger with you so you can charge at different camp sights. Looking for ideas how to mount it in the bagwell. I was thinking some kind of dry box. To keep it dry and safe. I have the Eric charger it’s kinda big. It would be cool to have a plug that pulled out kinda like a camper hook up. Can you enclose the charger or do I have to worry about heat.

The ERIC charger is waterproof, so you only need to worry about water getting in the connections for the AC power cord and the charge cord. Some silicone grease will prevent water getting to those.

It can not be enclosed in a box, it has to have ventilation or it can overheat. Club car sells a plastic "cover" for on-board mounting the ERIC charger, but its kind of expensive.

The ERIC does have overheat protection, so it will stop charging if the charger temp gets too high, it will then resume when the temp drops. So depending on how quickly it heats up and how long it takes to cool, it could take a very long time to complete a charge cycle if it's closed up in a box.

The standard ERIC charger is not programmed for on-board use. You will have to disconnect it from the battery pack each time after a charge. If you just leave it connected to the pack it will not start a new charge cycle on it's own. There are several ways around that, using an relay triggered by AC power being plugged in, or a switch to manually disconnect.

There are a few people here who have done very nice on-board mounts with retractable cord reels that you just reel out and plug in. You may have to swap the female plug end on the cord for a male end.
