I'd Fully charge that battery then have a shop load test it.

Dry camp is no 110 volt avail. So the other "Deep Cycle" 12 battery is when you are charging the dead battery. With a generator. Additionally, have you had any light/lamp issues. It maybe a wire issue. My battery would died prematurely at strange intervals. Once I had to slide the truck under the king pin, scary night. My tether cord had an issue and I blamed it on the 5r plug. After replacing the plug three times I finally let the shop replace the complete cord. Now trouble free...... Just saying...

Yeah I wondered.
They don't like to be deeply discharged to many times before there junk.
It's not a "true" rv battery.
It's a dual purpose marine starting/rv deep cycle battery.
Depending on what you find if you have to replace it go with a true deep cycle battery.
Others can give you a better battery recommendation.

I think i may go with optima ' s when mine give up.

I recommend this one- Trojan 27TMH or the 27TMX; I couldn't see what the significant differences were between the two. And, I found a local battery wholesaler- they typically deal commercially but will sell to the oddball on the street. The price was $145 and the cheapest only price I found was $220+$80 for shipping. I was VERY happy for that find.

If you have a Dometic refrigerator you might want to check if you have this Climate Control Switch and if it is on.
