Sorry I don't think I'm going to be any help. Everything you say points to the batteries. I was thinking possibly you had the wrong kind of battery installed. But with no brand name it's hard to tell. Good luck.

You either have a defective battery that has a high impedance or a bad connection. The drop you are getting IS the problem. You need to look for a bad connection in the battery wiring and load test each battery. You could connect and then read each battery and find out where your big drop is.

Those battery cables don't look good. Some look like they might not make good connections.

Yes those cables look like crap and I'm almost sure that those batteries are a maintenance free version of marine deep cycles that are made for starting type use. If so one or more may be shot already from use in a cart where the amp draw is both heavy and long....
