Can I get help with what this damaged component is?
And what makes it fail?

WOW! I have never seen one melt down like that before! That almost looks like a lightning strike or some major fault!

That's the battery charger and it can be found here: https://shop.gentekpower.com/products/g ... a1801-more

Thank you!
Customer was municipal. They noticed a blink then smelled somthing burnt.
Two breakers got real warm that they did not notice before.
Everything normal when I arrived.

I would check the transformer that feeds it as well. Unit will run without the charger for testing, but the battery will eventually die without it.

I believe they are a connector made by Molex. They may be available through Generac as well, but would take me some looking to find them and the pins.
