Is this a smart charger or one that puts out 1 amp 24/7? If it is putting out the 1 amp constantly you need to either get a smart charger that adjusts the output to meet the batteries needs or put your current charger on a timer and only run it a few hours a day. You would have to monitor it for a few days trying different charge times, until you hit the magic number.
1 amp 24/7 is too much for your batteries.
Just my thoughts,
