Well that solves that question then ( very logically lol). There is no change when it is plugged in. I have a digital volt meter for it and it has sat the same regardless of what I do.

No not yet. I called again today just in case I slipped thru the cracks ( I don't want to be the pestering guy) and left George a Voicemail but haven't heard back.

He's usually pretty good at getting back to you. He should be soon

Well he got back to me and gave me links to some additional ( and updated from manual ) tests to run and told me to call him back once I do them. I am sure he is gone for the day but when testing my transformer it is only putting out 3.4 volts so I think unfortunately it is safe to say that I have a bad transformer, and I assume that a new one is more than the unit is worth.

A replacement transformer is usually not economical. A new DPI charger can be had for $285 and it has a float charge option

Thanks for the help. I will look into a DPI now. $285 isn't bad, but kills the budget for my lift :( Gotta pay to play i guess!
