I thought truck should be charging batteries too. I didnít bring volt meter so not 100% sure but the usually are real close to full charge when new.
I know when I hooked them up connecting ground last it sparked a little so there is a draw somewhere.
The ground wire eyelet broke off the wire grounding batteries to frame when I put them in and now batteries are holding. Think I just need to figure out what is on besides fridge that would drain them.
They are deep cycle 6 volt batteries wired for 12 volt
I will get to checking into it soon.
Thank you for response
