I bought new ones in Houston from Republic Battery on Long Drive at Wayside last time I was home. (about 6 months ago) Don't remember what I paid but if you call him tell him Darrell Cauley recommended him to you. His name is Casey, he's the owner.

Interstate...

The batteries are somewhat sealed so if they did not get opened while under water, they may be OK.. however they do have a vent in the cap..

I would take them to Interstate Battery & have them check them.. they may have a way to flush them out..
For new batteries, I use Interstate Battery for new batt's in my (Tejas Custom Carts) refurbed carts...

If your cart is 36V (6 - 6Volt batt's) then you can go to Sams & get them cheaper...

But if your cart is 48 Volt (6 - 8 Volt batt's) then you will have to go to a battery dealer... I recommend Interstate.,.

They will not last quite as long as the Trojans, but only about a year less.. for a bit less money...

BTW, change your battery cables at the same time.. you should use 4 gauge wire cables instead of the 6 gauge that are stock.. better performance & better run time.. if you need the cables, let me know.. We make our own..

Also wash all the electrical area & battery area real good with a degreaser like Simple Green then spray all electrical connections with CRC 2-26 to inhibit the corrosion as well as provide for better electric connectivity. DO NOT USE CORROSION X ON ELECTRICAL OR PLASTIC....

Hope this helps...

It's been a while, but we used to buy refurbed batteries from a place called Golden Eagle battery between Pearland and Alvin on Highway 35.

They have a 1 year garauntee. It has been quite a long time, but if they are still around, they have solid refurbs.

Cart Batteries

Trojans usually last 5 to 7 years depending on their maintenance program..

The cart charger, unless it is antique, is self regulating & will only charge what it needs to.,. so you can plug it in daily or weekly..

you could buy a charge meter, $25 or so which will let you keep a better eye on it... I usually charge the shop cart once a week unless someone really uses it up then when it slows down or the charge light is flashing, we plug it in...

When you replace your batt's, change the cables to 4 Ga... makes a difference.

Also on any cart always keep the connections TIGHT & CLEAN.. use a waterproof grease or we use a battery terminal cleaner & corrosion inhibitor...
You can get these at the auto parts store... PLUS, check the water & keep topped up with distilled water...

The cheapest is Sams club. I just bought a pack for $66.00 apiece on HWY 6. They work great. I bought 4GA jumpers from an auto parts store, it helped alot.
