Battery Sensor Problem - Or Not

Just returned from a dry camping trip, daytime temp: 54 av. ; nighttime: 32 av. One day ran my Honda 2000 gen. for total of 5 hours per park rules through the converter. While it was running the control panel showed all 4 bars indicating the battery was charging. When I turned off the gen. the control only showed 2 bars (weak) and almost immediately went to 1 bar and the low battery warning on the combo. Propane/CO2 alarm came on.
I switched over to my back-up battery and made it through the night.

Next morning I put my battery tester on the errant battery and it gave a 12.6 reading. I then ran the gen. through a battery charger to this battery and after about a minute the charger showed the battery fully charged. I later hooked this battery to the camper and it worked fine.

The battery is a series 24 deep cycle new this year (came with the camper). Anyone else experience this? Any suggestions on things I should check? I'm at a loss to explain this.
