Hey guys, my new XPS charger came in yesterday. The problem WAS the old charger. Turns out, that in the mess of wires from the previous owner, it was only a 1 bank 12v charger trying to charge a 24v system. New charger works great. The directions said to mount it 8" clear on ALL sides for proper cooling. I didn't have that space but it is in roomy and well vented space. Should be OK right? Now I'm just waiting for the new motorguide and the ice to melt.
