Default Eric Battery Charger

Can someone tell me at what voltage should be on my batteries right before my Eric charger cuts off its a 2016 Club Car with Brand new Trojan 875 Batteries.

It depends which phase of the charge cycle it's in. Normal bulk charge, you should see around 59 - 62v, depending on pack condition. On a brand new pack, you will probably see voltage on the higher end as the pack breaks in and since the cells will be in their most ideal condition.
During equalization or finish charge phase you may see as high as 65v or possibly more, depending on battery pack condition.

Ok I have 6 of these and they are going up to 66,8 plus and if you unplug them after fully charged they will charge another 5 to six hrs that just dosnt seem right to me even though the club car dealer says thats right

Like I said before, 65v is considered normal. Trojan recommends 64.8v during an equalization phase. You can see slightly higher or lower depending on pack condition, and brand new batteries will often be slightly higher due to the cells brand new.

The batteries don't continue to charge after you unplug the charger. The high voltage part of the charge cycle is designed to allow the cells to fully charge as part of the deep cycle process, and balance the voltage between cells. After the charger turns off, that high voltage leaves a surface charge which takes several hours to taper off after the charge is finished. That's normal for this type of battery. If FLA batteries do not get charged at a voltage higher than the nominal pack voltage, the pack never reaches a full charge.

Did you change the algorithm in the ERIC charger when you put the new batteries in?

Sounds like the charger is still using the Club Car algorithm #31 or #256....Should have #3 for Trojan batteries...If that is the case you will over charge and use the amount of water that you are..
