batteries won't charger

Hi everyone,
We had our AS parked and inadvertently left fridge on and it seems to have drained the batteries. We now have it plugged into shoreline at home but the batteries don't seem to want to charge. Any ideas? or do we need to get 2 new ones?

If they have been dead and discharging for a long time, probably yes.

Depth of discharge X time is very bad for batteries.

Gradiens super tenui glacie.

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......

I would start by taking a voltage reading then a slow charge over a 24 + hour period and another voltage reading. Batteries don't last forever and if these were originals it is time to replace them anyway.
