I had my wife come get me and got the trailer and brought it home. Battery shows about 9.4 volts. I hooked it up to the Battery Tender.

I rode it over the weekend; had no issues starting it up. WTF?

An ideas what else to check?
Charge it, and see if it starts. With voltage that low, sounds like a shorted cell. Sometimes, it just happens.
