Charging at 16v

I have a 97 Imperial 40WDS and when I plug into shore power I am charging the batteries at over 16V. I tested the batteries and found one of my 12V batteries bad so I replaced them both. I plugged it in and again I am at 16V. I assume I have a problem with the invertor just not sure what it would be at this point. Any thoughts???

I'd double check with a volt/ohm meter just to be sure it's really 16V and not a bad gauge/meter.

agree - double check with a known good meter

It's a professional fluke 97 charger. It is reading over 16v and my steps quit working when it sees that high of a voltage.

16v

It seems that I have a loose connection, the remote panel was only showing 10V on battery. After removeing the cover on the invertor and making sure the connections are good and tight I now read 12v. After plugging in the shore power I have 14.5v and less than 10A charging. It seems to be working. I will check all connections tomorrow.
