Sounds to you have short (maybe not a'dead' short, but close to it)
somehere in the tractor. That would explain meter in the red and may
the breaker popping as the charger is trying to draw too much current.
It could be the charger I guess. One of the service manuals on the
Elc-Trak.org site has a good troubleshooting procedure for chargers.
Actually it also has good troubleshooting for the rest of the machine. I
can't recall offhand which one it is in.
