If you have 6v batteries. You could also charge them 2 at a time with a normal 12v charger (you don't have to unhook everything but I would suggest unhooking the links between the pairs)

... unhook Main Positive from Battery 1. Leave the - to + connecting 1 and 2. Disconnect the Positives from every Odd Number Battery: 1, 3, 5, 7. Then disconnect the Pack Negative from Battery 8.

Charge them 2 at a time 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and 6, 7 and 8.

Of course this assumes you are running 8x6v batteries.
Iíve checked that the battery terminals are all good and snug. Unfortunately I have 8v batteries in my cart :-(.

Thatís what I was afraid of. Dead batteries and dead OBC. Any recommendations on a brand of smart charger? Iíve had good luck with Scotty B, so if what he carries is good thatís probably what Iíll order.

You'll want to ask ScottyB about that. I'm sure he has plenty of good recommendations. I have no personal experience with aftermarket chargers.

The batteries may not be totally dead, but if they're continuing to out-gas after several days off the charger you certainly don't want that sulfury vapor floating around in the air in your house. Mix those fumes with just a tiny bit of moisture and it will wreck your AC system, and can wreck any electrical outlets that get moisture or condensation on them. It will discolor and damage paint, and will damage most exposed metals.

Since the batteries were 8 months old I called Costco and explained the situation. They told me to bring them in and theyíd refund them. Works for me.
