New House Batteries in our 2008 Lexington 283GTS

We are needing to replace the 2 house batteries in out 2008 Lexington 283GTS. I was looking at the Interstate batteries at Costco but need to know what size batteries are needed (I assume it best to replace with deep cycle marine batteries) .Thanks

Most nowadays are Group 27, but may be group 24 You need to look at the battery to determine.

Lots of opinions, but my spin is to use anything cheap if you do not drycamp much, and go to real deep cycle 6volt golf cart bats if you plan on drycamping frequently. Trojans are real good, as are several other makes.

COSTCO generics are fine if you are not drycamping, and some have had success even then, but my experience has not been good.

New batteries

Our local Costco carries the Interstate Deep Cycle 30 Month batteries. Are these a good name battery? Thanks

for regular point to point hookup camping they are fine. For dry camping they may not last very long
