Thanks, guess I'll start pricing them out.

Unhook the gray sense lead wire leave the fuse in the side going to receptacle alligator clip 10g wire to fuse to 48-
Monitor charger to 0-5 amps then unhook. It won't shut off on its own.
This will keep you charged until u get dpi
Make sure u buy the dpi with obc removed

Sorry, just a little confused on to what I'm supposed to do here (just until I receive new charger). I understand I will have to monitor charge as it will not turn off. What I'm I unhooking and Jumping?

thanks

Cart receptacle backside has 3 wires + - & gray wire with a yellow coupler with a 3/8a fuse in it. Separate coupler leave fuse in the coupler closest to receptacle. Now connect that to 48v-. I use a jumper with alligator clips.
The charger should charge now.

Perfect. Done.....Now that I'm manually charging the batteries what is a good/safe cut off voltage i'm looking for (at what voltage should I stop)?

Once the current drops down to 4 or 5 amps let it charge for a hour or so longer.

Let it go to 51v or so if u have a meter to monitor
If it's been a while at 49 u probably have a bad cell. 48 is like 50% so u can look at charts on here and see what 49 is. If u get 50.3 after rest it's 100%.
