It's at about 50% capacity or ready for a recharge.
If you had a full charge 3 days ago and have not been driving it then I say the batteries are toast provided the charger is working

I've had the cart about 5 months, the guy I bought it from said the batteries were about 3 years old...Scotty, I have run around the house here and there and have not charged it, the last charge was a week ago tomorrow/

You can try doing an equalization charge on your batteries. The next time your batteries are finished charging unplug the DC cord, wait a few moments and plug it right back in again and wait until the charge is finished. This should put your charger in the equalization mode. Do this about once a month and it should show improvement. This is assuming you have a PD charger. Plus keep your charger plugged in when not in use. If you have a DPI charger there is a different procedure.

For DPI chargers temporally set the charger to Mode 1. This sets the max voltage to 61.6v. Close enough to the 62 volts that Trojan recommends for an equalization charge.
Don't forget to return to mode 2. I left the cover off just to remind myself.

You have too much of a difference on the batteries. Even if you just ran it around the house. Unless you live in a mansion and its 10 miles around your house.
