CHARGER FIXED---thanks to all that contributed here. For simple testing, I took the case cover off and installed a 15A auto fuse, tried and "pop". put in a 20A auto fuse and "pop". With that I assumed after some discussions with members that the charger was shot, and according to Lester, the chargers transformer was shot.
WELL in the mean time DR PUFF suggested trying a new circuit breaker and regulator/rectifier piece, as he said these were common problems. so for the under $50 price, I said what the heck, its worth it. So now, today I decided to throw the parts in for the heck of it, not expecting it to work since all tests led to a bad transformer,, and what do you know--IT'S FIXED!!!
Now I don't know which was bad as I replaced both at the same time, and I honestly don't care..just glad this charger was fixed with the help of BGW members, and thanks again, it made for a happy day

OK I will grab the charger back (its right next door) early in the week and throw the breaker back in, and the results will tell which was the culprit. You're right, it would be good to know. Sure glad I was too lazy and didn't throw the parts away, the garbage can is ALL THE WAY on the other side of the garage

Been there and done that just this morning before my coffee. Found a spring cotter pin on the pad and thought it was from the previous camper... tossed it into one of the trash cans... and just as I let it go realized that it couldn't have been from a previous camper since the pad was clean when I got there. Turns out it was from the front end of my cart. And no, I didn't go searching for it.. just used a pull tie until I can get another one!
