It's not a true deep cycle battery, but usually the one's dealers install when the rig is new aren't either.

Sorry to disagree this is a true deep cycle battery and at $84.00 is a good price.

I thought the general rule was if it showed cranking amps it wasn't a deep cycle

That is a good deal at that price. If you have room for 2 of those you will have pretty decent amp hours.

Exide puts "Marine" cranking amps on their deep cycle batteries, don't know why but this is a true deep cycle marine/RV battery.

This is not a pure deep cycle battery. The nautilus is a dual purpose battery. A true deep cycle battery is a single purpose deep cycle battery
