Are you looking for 12-volt or 6-volts in series?

My thinking is that any old group-24 12-volt will do you fine if you are on electric 100% of the time. Group 27 or 31 if you need to be off the grid for a couple of nights.
If you are looking for the most Ah, than two 6-volts wired in series or two 12-volts wired in parallel (if you have the room).
I have two Trojan T-145 in series that give me four days of power (and we are not too conservative). Hard to beat Trojan batteries.
We are on electric all of the time (with the exception of hooking up to the truck when pulling out of storage)
I store my rig at my home. I
plug the trailer in every other week to keep the batteries charges and I have always keep a close eye on the water levels.
It sounds like I have gotten about the average life out of it.
I will stay 12V and the 27-group should be fine.
What I was curious about was what brand others are using.
Sears had a deep cycle battery on sale a few weeks ago. I was considering that brand but it seems that the group feels Interstate would be a better choice.
That's what I like about this forum. Always good input from folks when you need it.
