Pat also has bad issues with Wally World batteries. In this case you are describing a dying battery nearly perfectly. I'd use the Wally return policy.

Good call, John. Old school experience, it does work.

uh Mos and Bill, I do put a light load on it. When i hit my aftermarket keyless entry in the mornings, the parking lights stay on for 1 minute. I think its just a too small walmart battery. 650 CA and 530 CCA. Its probably on its way out now.

650 is way too small for a Bonne!! I have a WallyWorld 800 or 1000 and it'* worked flawlessly for 2 or 3 years now

Wait... Maybe mine is AutoZone. I know the one I put in The Missus' van is WallyWorld. Couple of years old. No issues at all
