Once everything was reassembled, the system was plugged in again and voila! The cooling fan within the unit started running and charging of the batteries commenced.
Final exams for the fall semester are being held this week, but when things calm down and the weather permits, we will put some miles on the GEM and charge the batteries again. It may take a few discharge/recharge cycles to bring the batteries up to full strength.
