That sucks. I'm sorry to hear that.
12v deep cycle batteries aren't REALLY deep cycle. They have thicker plates, but not as thick as some that classify them as deep cycle.
ANYWHO. If I was going to replace my batteries tomorrow, I'd buy a pair of 6-volt T-105 golf cart batteries and wire them in series. Those things are bombproof, and last forever.
Others have a lot of opinions I'm sure. You could go lithium... if you wanted to spend $1,000 or AGM, or a myriad of other options. My choice is on the T-105s.
