I have a 2000 Harney and it has the Heart Freedom model 10 charger/ converter. Recently I noticed all my T105 Trojan house batteries were completly dry. They were 8 years old and have always used very little water.
I replaced them with new Trojans and now it seems the charger is not working and the batteries appear to not be getting any voltage from the Heart charger and the transfer switch doesn't seem to be working.
My question is: can these units be repaired or just bite the bullet and buy a new one.
Also any help or information on a similar problem and corrective action that worked.
Thanks

They can be repaired, the question is should they. It may be more cost effective to upgrade to a newer unit.
I'm not sure where they're repair facilities are but an internet search should tell you.

There is a place in Tampa that works on them but $350 for a new one. Pretty easy decision.
I hope you are the one who bought it.
