Well then you did not do it right. There are two fuses that you have that blow, that you can just replace the fuse. I talked with Eric, and he told me to replace the 10 amp with a 15 or 20 amp fuse. The top one is the one that blows. But you have to hook up one end to the postive, and the other to the negative. If you are using the charger say for a bank of 4 batteries at then you hook up the Positive, and the negative to the last battery in the bank. Okay then start off at the least settings on the charger (both). Then start with the Voltage setting until the needle moves, once it jumps to 4-6 amps, then adjust the amp to make the meter go to 8 amps, on the needle scale, that is your setting, just let it charge from there, I have not had any problems. If you hook it up like you would normally hook up a charger, then you might blow the fuse.

I bought one from showtime a couple years back, and works great, I had to replace the fuses once after a misfortunate grounding! :0

Yeah that is the biggest problem with Billings. There is a strong current that circles Billings, so either the snow goes around, or does not stay for long. How did the Griz do this weekend.

Well if you feel like a dumb ass that is your problem, all I was saying was that the battery charger has two fuses that are there to protect the Charger from blowing. If you fuck up the charge, then you will fry the resistors inside the charger, then the charger is fucked. But I blew the fuses a couple of time until I replaced them with a 20 amp fuse and since then I have not had any problems.

We fuckin lost. it was an awesome game, double over time, final score was 43-40. We had a field goal blocked that would have given us a tie and taken it into 3rd overtime. I am still pissed about it. I am a die-hard griz fan. Losing sucks!!!
