Only thing I see, that concerns me,is the battery and cable connections. The connections on the batteries are automotive type, with bolts for cable connections. If mine, I would remove each cable and connection, and start by cleaning the battery posts, the adapter and the bolt for the cable ends. With this setup you have double the places , where any one bad connection can kill the carts operation. I don't like the looks of the negative terminal on the battery next to the controller. The one in the sun!
