Charging Problem

Wondering what your thoughts are about why one battery (right side) would not be getting a charge while the left side is. With truck running, the voltmeter reads 14.7 on the left side and only 12.5 on the right. Both read 12.5 not running. I appreciate any input. Thanks

A crack in the cable going from the Pass battery to the Driver side maybe.
