Unhappy 87 Club Car New BatteriesWon't Charge

87 Club Car with Lester II charger. Just installed a new set of Trojan t105's. But after using equivalent of 18 holes, the charger never goes above 10.
Had charger tested at local golf cart shop and they say it's OK. Are there some other components in the cart's electrical system that prevent the charger from working correctly ?

Battery polarity incorrect on one or more batteries or a lost rectifier diode are both common explanations for that problem.

thanks to all those that replied. Despite one cart shop telling me the charger was good, I called Lester and they suggested having the charger retested. In fact it was a diode in the charger that was bad.

All seems to working OK now
