Replacement house batteries

Looks like I will likely need new house batteries for our 2014 this spring. Just not holding charge with this cold weather even though all battery disconnects are off. And I do turn them on when I exercise the generator so they get a charge.

Anyone replace theirs yet and what do you all recommend?

The largest (Amp Hour Capacity) battery that will fit the space available.

it looks by your picture that you might have a Berkshire.... I wouldn't think you'd already need to worry about replacing your house batteries - if you have the Magnum Inverter/Charger and it's LCD panel, you can push the CHARGER button for several seconds, if memory serves correct, and it will take your batteries into EQUALIZING mode, as long as you are plugged into 50a service.
This is a way to 'balance' your batteries, by the system carefully 'overcharging' them for a set period, usually about 3 hours or so. This brings each battery level with the other, and often times will 'refresh' your battery's outputs, like new!

but, look at your Magnum manual, or this website link, to be sure:

enjoy your Berkshire!
