there are thousands of posts here about the RV parasitic power drains and how to deal with them.
you probably will have to replace this battery, as it has probably been completely drained numerous times.
i installed a cheap $7 disconnect switch on the batteries of my previous trailer. i could store it for 4 months with no shore power and the batteries were still nearly fully charged.
