If you want to check the condition of the batteries, you need do so after being disconnected from the charger ( convertor) for about 24hrs. Use the chart below to determine state of charge or better yet get a hydrometer ( inexpensive)

Thank you Flybob! I will do that. Can I also use that chart to check the batteries after they have been powering a few devices or do I need to totally disconnect from charger and TT to confirm the condition?

Total disconnect and let 'em (it) set as it'll retain a surface charge that'll give you a false reading.....the load checker is really the way to go.
