Two questions come to mind:
What is the voltage with a load on the battery ... such as 10 amps..... ?
What is its measured capacity now?

Mex,

I guess the batteries don't owe you a dime.

Charged regularly? We don't know how they were treated.

The two batteries in my truck were produced 12/2010 and are still working fine.

I followed up today with a standard BCI load test 15 seconds. 375 amperes 10.05 volts. Instant recovery to 12.3 volts then 12.5 volts after 10 seconds.
I will stick a 36 amp Megawatt on it flat voltage of 14.40 volts for six hours tomorrow.
The last capacity test revealed 94% capacity April of last year then a recharge then disconnect. The battery served as UPS for a BiPAP and was not heavily cycled.
