Odds are it is just an issue with setting up the batteyr monitor, but you might also want to look for the manufacutring date on the batteries. If there is no date code embossed or stamped someplace (usually on a side, near the top. sometimes on the top, and often intentionally hidden under the edge of a label) to see how long the batteries were sitting at the dealer. If they were more than 90 days old, it is also possible they lost some capacity due to sulphating while sitting around. One never knows without taking a look.
