My experience is that batteries that are let to go that low never come back up to be useful again....They may be too far gone...

found 2 of the bat. low. One all but dead. I've put 12 volt charger at 2 amps and it is putting out 9 volts. I thought I would keep an eye on it and see if it will come up. any thoughts? Thanks Scottyb

Is it a good idea to leave the regular battery charge on all the time or just put it on every so often.

A few. ...
An 8v battery is full at 8.49 and dead at 8.07v. It should not be drawn down below that.
Leaving a lead acid battery in a state of discarge for even overnight is detrimental ... longer does irreversable damage.
Charging 8v batteries with a 12v charger can lead to trouble if not done by a qualified tech.
Keep us posted.

Wait for the cart charger to shut off autmatically. It should do this in 12 hours or so considering the state of your batteries..... then wait 1 hr for surface charge to settle and post battery readings for each of the six batteries here. You can hope but I doubt the battery problem is over. Batteries should be kept charged up after each 15 - 90 minute use ....
