    One optima is about a year old.. Other is about 3 months old... What could be causing it to be fine 6 hours ago and now at 9.8 volts...

    One of the batteries took a dump. Find out which one, and remove it.

    That could be right but I have such a battery bank... I don't know what could drain it that fast.

    What hasn't been modified?
    Optimal wont charge under 10.5 volts Use jumper cables to hook to a battery with good voltage and once the optima reads over 10.5 then connect a trickle charger to the optima while keeping the other battery connected. Do that for a few hrs then disconnect everything and see what the optima voltage is at

    That looks like a bucket of smashed assholes. Take the terminals off and scrub those posts and clamps.

    What are you looking at in the pic? Is it the lead getting pinched or shorted by the screw or whatever?
