I'm assuming that it was originally a two battery setup and someone added the third battery and never finished the install.
I agree with your assumption.

The battery with the unconnected negative is not even in the circuit. It's nothing but ballast.

I look forward to seeing how you clean this up and put that 3rd battery to work.
