Default Another Battery / Charger Question

Sorry if this has been addressed before, but I looked through many links and did not find the answer.

I just recently purchased a 86 CC 36V and had some trouble charging it. I diagnosed the problem as a bad relay in the AccuPower charger. When this was replaced, the charger seemed to work fine except for the amperage output. The ammeter is only reading 10 amps. I looked up the charger, and it is supposed to max at 20 amps and decline or cut off when reaching a full charge.

Is this normal, or is the charger malfunctioning? I am afraid the timer assembly board may be bad (although I am not sure of its complete purpose) and that the charger may not cut off when fully charged. If this is not the case, could it be a bad battery or set of batteries.

I am a safety nut, so I am a bit nervous about over charging and the resulting hydrogen gas explosion or battery bursting. What is a safe amount of time to leave a battery on a charger, and what are the signs of overcharging (other than steam or smoke).

Sorry for the long post, all help is greatly appreciated.
