We use two 6 volt flooded Interstate Deep Cycle Extreme (232 Ah) in our fifth-wheel with the Solar Elite system
. We are currently in Mexico with our rig and in November - December we were camping on the beach for 6 weeks with no shore power, only solar, and it all worked fine, including Nespresso machine, wife's hair dryer etc. Driving down the Baja Peninsula over 2 days, in full sunshine, the solar system ran the fridge just fine.
However, another bank of batteries will be installed when we get home for extra storage and we will use more power next trip with the addition of a satellite dish. I will have to do some modification to make sure the batteries are vented properly.
