Issue / Question:
Went to start auto, completely dead, no dome light. Put a battery meter on it, showed bad. Put battery charger on it, and the charger needle went spastic, thinking there might be a dead short in the battery. Put my rv battery in and works fine. Could a two and a half yr old battery act like that, thinking everything in this vehicle is fused if there were a short somewhere in the system,wouldn’t affect the battery like this.

Answer:
A battery can leave you high and dry and never blow a fuse, because they short out internally, replace the battery (have the old one pro rated) and you should be fine.
