In addition it would overload and possibly burn out the charger, if it didn't have some sort of circuit protection!

If you are trying to get dead batteries up enough for a cart charger to come on, you could try charging one 8V battery at a time on the 6V setting. This will hurt absolutely nothing, but you may not get enough of a charge to operate your cart charger. The first method I suggested works great, if you have 2 chargers!
How would I go about hooking the chargers in a series? Do I connect 12v+ to first battery and negative to the other charger and then connect the 12v- to the third battery?

Thank you so much. Very good directions. I will get a jumper wire and give it a try.
Thanks again

Just as an FYI, You do not need a jumper, the Relay contact quick connect is the same size as as the AC Breaker (0.250").

Just move the transformer wire from the Relay to the Breaker, see picture below with my annotations on the bottom right.
