New house batteries

So I just picked up a 2016 for 26A. I installed two new 6 V deep cycle batteries. I am running the generator and everything works but as soon as I shut off the generator The batteries appear dead. If I wasn’t getting 12 volts than the generator wouldn’t start is what I am presuming. I don’t know what to think. Battery switch is set to use.

Have you plugged the unit in. This will give you a good deep battery charge.
