Never seen black Trojans except in the Pacer line. I HAVE seen red TroZen batteries!

Those look like OEM Club Car Trojan batteries to me, but I'm not a tech or anything.

The batteries are original Trojans manufactured for Club Car. They used this configuration for a while, and the troubles they had with them are well documented. They have since returned to 6-8v batteries on the 48v systems. There may be compensation from Club Car, but I do not know the specifics, I am simply repeating info I have read here on this forum.

Actually, Yes it was! (meant beb, rather then bd)

Try resetting the OBC...If it doesn't solve your situation, then so be it... no money spent!

Just 2 cents... Hope you get it figured out!

No... the OBC and the controller are two different peices of equipment!
The controller has your speed setting,
The OBC monitors and affects the state of charge of your batteries.

And it's to my understanding that, the OBC monitors how much voltage "has been used"
and will only charge it that much, to avoid overcharging!

Or... if you don't feel comfortable resetting the OBC, individually charge each battery, (with an automatic Marine Deep Cell charger)
and see what happens... again... no money lost!

Hey... ya' never know!
