Default Charging issue after conversion

I'm sure I am probably doing something wrong, but all of the sudden my new dpi 48 V charger is getting hot at the charging receptacle right beside the fuse. On it. It's also reading 19 amps on the charger? Do I even NEED the fuse on top of the charging receptacle? I hooked the negative to the main negative and the positive to the main positive on the pack-what do you think is wrong?

Think maybe my red jumper wire connecting the fuse to the positive is too small? It's what was there before - on 36v

Could there be alot of resistance in the charge wires? Or a loose connection in the plug / receptacle fit? Everything else is new....

I thought about replacing the connections with new bolts. Do I need that fuse?

YEah, I think you should leave the fuse in. Heat is caused by resistance...bottom line. I would suggest you replace the 8g wire that goes to the main + too.

How heavy, (what gauge), do the wires need to be between the charging receptacle and the pack?

It looks like 10g would do for 48v and 8g for 36v

what kind of conversion? your charge receptical wires should be 10 gage and yes you should leave the fuse on top of receptical.........was this a 36 to 48 volt conversion? if so you should get the fuse they use for 48 volt recepticals its a lot heavier than what is pictured..............................
