If you are having symptoms of a bad battery then you can load test them to determine which is bad. If everything is working fine and you are just curious the reading on the volt meter should suffice. Others have hooked up the volt meter and then driven down the road and if you get a sharp drop it is most likely one of the batteries. You can then, by process of elimination find out which it is.

i think but am not certain that 1 hour of continuios use is about the norm, you can check them 1 at a time with a voltage meter...1st take your readings from each battery and write them down than get a few good clips and clip meter ends on one battery at a time and watch the drop in voltage and write those #,s down and pay attention to how long before it recovers, post your #,s .....................................
