Default 36V Charger Blows Circuit Breaker

Ok, carts running great but I can't charge it. It's an automatic charger with a 15 Amp breaker on the front. Charger trips about 10 minutes into cycle and I have to reset breaker on front of charger.

Any ideas?

Easiest way to determine if it's charger or cart, is swap with a friend , acquaintance . see if yours works on their cart or Vise-versa.

Ok. Charger is fine. It was pushing too much amperage to the batteries because they were under 6 volts. Once I got the batteries above 6V the charger stayed on. I've been driving around all day!

Thanks for your advice guys. Really glad to be a part of this community.
