Electric Panel Indicators?

I just bought my first travel trailer. On the panel where I have indicators for my tank levels and light switches, I can also test the charge in my dual 12v batteries. Four red lights are available from left to right "L", "F", "G", "C". Right now all 4 light up and I am not hooked up to any city power. I first thought maybe the L was for Low and F was for Fair. Is G for good and if so then what does the C represent? If the C is for Charge, then why is it higher on the pecking order above Good, instead at the bottom below Low?
I posted this question last week but I am still confused as there was no definitive answer.

To accurately check battery status you need a digital battery meter the panel meter you have is worthless.
Never go below 50% soc before recharging.

12.6+ 100%
12.5 90%
12.42 80%
12.32 70%
12.20 60%
12.06 50%
11.9 40%
11.75 30%
11.58 20%
11.31 10%
10.5 0%
