Sunseeker 3010DS House Battery Replacements

After 5 to 6 years the house batteries got to where they wouldn't take a charge, would get very hot and voltage decay when charger turned off down to 9vdc. Very dangerous situation when batteries getting that hot during charging. The batteries were original and generic with no part number or manufacture/make. I think they were Group Size 27. Marine/RV Batteries. The local RV place said without knowing exactly what they were, the price range would be $113-$159 each. I found a Group Size 27 RV/Marine battery Deep Cycle and same physical size at Walmart EverStart Lead Acid Marine/RV Battery, Group 27DC 750 MCA $81.67 each. I purchased two and installed them, just right perfect fit in the battery box below the entry steps. Has anyone tried these batteries in a RV?? I think they should be ok and at a much better price than the local Mom and Pop RV Shop. Maybe even better than the Forest River generic no name batteries that they originally installed.
