Hi, my name is ***** ***** is caused by a connection problem in the battery cables that go between the 2 batteries, and is very common, at each battery, there are several wires on each termnals, you need to remove eack wire and clean the contacts and reinstall, can you do this?

when it is doing this the gage on the dash goes the the low end of its swing. the one batt. after drivving only 20 mins. and tuned off smells like rotten egg.and then to try to start it will not and turn over very slow. Is this part of that ?

Yes, first check all the battery termonal wires and clean them, if it still does it, then one of the batteries is bad, you need to remove the cables from both batteries and have them load tested seperate to find the one that is bad,Tim
