golf cart charger for battery bank?

Strange idea, but I was wondering if it would be possible to charge the house batteries with a golf cart charger, 6 deep cell batteries? Seems like it would be a lot more work than necessary, but would it work?

Re: golf cart charger for battery bank?

A charger is a charger. It just depends on operating voltage. I'm not sure what voltage golf carts run on, but I would venture to say it is greater than the 12 vols we typically use.

as far as elec. golf cart go they run most generally on 36 or 48 volts, this is acomplished with 6 or 8 deep cell 6 volt batteries hooked up in series.

Sure seems like overkill to me, considering theyre all 6-8? 6 volt batteries. I'd rather stick with the traditional route of 2 or 3 probably. Does anybody have 4 or more house batteries in their skoolies? Is there an advantage?
