Just lit off an MEP002A & I'm trying to sort out a battery indicator gauge that reads low charge sometimes & other times reads nothing. Batteries are new & are being properly charged at 28.5 volts (per external meter reading across the two batteries with generator running).
Checked the TM and couldn't locate much info on the gauge or wiring. Opened up the control box and see 1 wire going to the gauge through a "rubber grommet". Can someone shed some light on this grommet-looking part in the wiring? Is there a resistor or something inside the rubber? Can the wiring be pulled out of the gauge for testing without damaging anything?
Maybe I just have a bad gauge but wanted to eliminate other causes of the gauge not reading properly while the batteries are being charged at the correct voltage.
