Normally the rotten egg smell is from batteries that are being overcharged or low on water. Yours might be bad battery connections, heating up under load or motor brushes.

If it is taking 24 hours to charge the batteries you have some bad batteries or connections, etc. I would start by checking all connwections then check all cells at least with a hydrometer. Check age of Trojans by looking on neg. post pad. Letter is month and number is year. If you bought it used in 05 your batteries are probably the problem. Good luck, new batteries will blow a big hole in the beer budget!!

You will smell it more if your batteries are boiling and being overcharged but hydrogen gas smell is normal. (ALL lead acid batteries produce hydrogen gas.) You have some cable/connection issues somewhere or possibly a bad battery. 10-12 hours should be more than enough time to fully charge a completely dead pack.
