Any ideas as to what happened? Is this something I can fix myself?

This makes me think the problem is in the R.A. Drive somewhere.
Any ideas are appreciated.

I contacted the battery manufacturer, Rayovac, and explained what had happened. The customer service representative was apologetic for my situation and told me that the repair would be covered.
Rayovac requested detailed photos along with the batteries from the telescope. I shipped the telescope to Meade for repair and after getting it back, Rayovac reimbursed me for not only the repair charge from Meade, but also my cost to ship the telescope to Meade in addition to the cost to ship the batteries for investigation. Rayovac even shipped a set of new batteries to me.
I’ve decided to play it safe and use an external 12V battery, but I really appreciate Rayovac standing behind their products.
