Good work, thanks for the update

Good car/truck batteries will be 12.3v to 12.8volts
12.8v when new
12.5v after 3 years
12.3v after 5/6 years and time to shop for battery sales

12.2v and lower have less than 50% capacity so will leave you stranded at some point
Thanks for the numbers. Those will help keep me out of trouble With all of my vehicles.

Yep. The rodents were using your battery to charge their phones.

Another "thanks" for posting the update. It's always good to hear what the resolution was, and the thread may be helpful to somebody else down the road.
LOL. I am grasping at straws in an effort to assuage my embarrassmen in missing such a basic problem. Maybe they incorporated A jumper into their nest to bask in the warmth generated by their little resistance heater?
