I'm looking to determine what the largest batteries are that will fit.
I just purchased a used 2012 Forester 2651S with the original batteries. I am coming from a Lance Truck Camper that used a Lifeline Battery that lasted for 9 years mostly dry camping with a Solar Panel. I am replacing the batteries with Lifeline GPL-27T's. If you look at the specs, to me, you get a diminishing return on capacity verses cost increase when going larger that the 27T. I am using two batteries. I paid $280 each to my door.
The Odyssey that you referenced may indeed be a hybrid DeepCycle-Starting battery and may not have the storage capacity like the Lifeline does. The Lifeline is a true deep cycle
