Default Follow up to my advice post last week.

My batteries are Trojan 30 XHS (cheaper alternative to the 1275's) and they are rated at 130 AH vs the 1275's 150 AH so I know they should produce about 80% to the 1275's. That's another story in itself.
I took them to Batteries Plus last week to check them out to see why I was getting such short run time. They load tested them and check the acid level which all seem to check out "ok". Brought them home today and did a performance test on them and my results are below. My question is based on the 80% performance to the 1275's do you see anything in my data that looks off. I appreciate any feedback and yes I know I should have got the 1275's but it's too late now as they weren't in stock and I was sold on the cheaper alternative.

2007 Club Car Prec lifted with rear flip seat , big tires and stock electronics

Readings 5 minutes after unplugging charger
Pack 56.3 Batt 1 13.66 Batt 2 13.53 Batt 3 13.78 Batt 4 13.79

After 1 mile
Pack 50.2 Batt 1 12.62 Batt 2 12.39 Batt 3 12.62 Batt 4 12.65

2 Mile
Pack 49.6 Batt 1 12.52 Batt 2 12.23 Batt 3 12.51 Batt 4 12.51

3 mile
Pack 49.1 Batt 1 12.40 Batt 2 12.06 Batt 3 12.42 Batt 4 12.42

4 mile
Pack 48.5 Batt 1 12.29 Batt 2 11.86 Batt 3 12.30 Batt 4 12.26

Finished at 4.42 Miles
Pack 48.2 Batt 1 12.28 Batt 2 11.79 Batt 3 12.28 Batt 4 12.23

All but 8/10 of a mile was done driving on flat paved surface. What you guys think? This is mostly a "hunting buggy" and probably doesn't include more than about a five mile trip but I would like to think I can get 8-10 miles of travel per charge.

Yes Battery #2 is very weak and it's .5 volts lower than the other 3 at the end of your test. That is a huge difference.

looks like #2 batt . ,is faulty - one battery can bring the whole pack voltage down and can cause run time issues, I would remove that #2 batt . From pack and put on a 6 volt charger and try and bring it up
There are some threads by Johnny -B that you can look at regarding same issue
Cheers !
