Gel/AGM batteries are designed to go as low as 1.74 volts per cell (around 10.5v) with no issues. I find these batteries in day to day use that routinely last 5 or more years discharged this low on a daily basis. But beware, your generator best be in top shape to start at that voltage...

Batteries must be read for charge at rest under NO load and with the surface charge not being a factor. Most meters are read with a system load as they are integrated into the system not independent. Also an idiot light does not a meter make, at best an indicator.
Just a couple comments.
