No charger should be sending 17V anywhere...nor should any battery bank.
13.4 volts out is a CORRECT float voltage for properly maintaining fully charged wet cell batteries. WHERE are you measuring 17 Volts??
If you've been gone...how is the battery WATER? If the plates are uncovered anywhere...you have found your problem.
