Default Club car charging question IQ PLUS

I am very sorry if this has been brought up before. I've searched the site but could not find the answer. I have two carts now. I have a 1996 CC villager 48v which had a bad OBC, which i bypassed. I bought a DCI charger from Scotty about a year and a half ago and bypassed my OBC on that cart. Charges great and everything works great with my now year old Trojans. Well, today i Picked up a 2006 CC transporter 4 which is sweet. It has the IQ plus system with the on board charger. It did not have batteries but i took the risk at $400. Its in great shape by the way. I took the battery pack from my first cart and put it in the transporter. Ran perfect!!. I had run the pack on my other cart for a total of no more than an hour use from a full charge. I plugged my transporter in , with these batteries, to test the charging system. When I plugged it in there was a few second delay and then the charger kicked on. I assumed everything was fine. it jumped up to about 15 amps but then within the first hour it went to about 5 amps and has been holding there for about 3 hrs. It's buzzing and charging. What i noticed though is that the batteries are making a bubbling sound and I can smell a faint odor of eggs. It is charging in my garage so that may contribute to the smell. My first cart, that i had this pack in with the DCI charger, I always charged outside because it was at my campground so I may have never heard the sounds from the batteries or the smell. I took a reading with the charger plugged in, after they were on for the 3 hrs, and my meter read around 60v (while still plugged in). I figure thats high because of it being plugged in. I guess my questions are, is the bubbling noise and smell normal? And, is the 5 amp reading and not budging normal after about an hour of being plugged in? I'm going to keep it plugged in overnight and hope that I don't fry my new pack and see if it shuts off. I'm hoping the OBC isn't bad and sure don't feel like spending the money on another DCI charger. I love that charger and the bypass on my first cart. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I'm sorry if I'm repeating the subject.

Funny thing, 10 min after I posted this I checked it and the charger shut of an I suspect it should. Seems like it charged pretty quick, 3-4 hrs that is. My batteries showed 54v which I suspect will level off lower in the morning. I'm still curious about the bubbling sound and the smell. This cart and electrical system is completely new to me.

All sounds fairly normal to me... I'm told that the DPI has a slightly lower and gentler charging curve, this may be why you've never noticed the bubbling or smell...
