What should I do now? Do I replace just one battery or replace the pair?

What is the age difference (or in other words, how old is the good battery). If the good battery is not very new, I would replace it as well. Otherwise the remaining battery could bring down the new one.

Bought the 5er used so I don't know the history but the batteries look to be about the same age. I've decided I'd best replace them both as a unit. Thanks everyone!

Put two six volt deep cycle golf batteries in their place - - you will be far happier and they last much longer.

FiverBob's recommendation is a good one. If your batteries are 12 Volt, Group 27 size (likely) then you have 200 Amp Hours of battery power.

Replacing these with two 6 volt golf cart batteries (like Trojan T-105's or similar) will give you around 220AH of power in a true deep cycle battery.
