Exclamation Surveyor 235RS replacements

Hi, I'm new to the forum because I'm a new owner of a 2008 235RS. This unit is used and needs a few replacement pieces. Does anyone know what battery this unit requires? I'm also trying to find the tire size too (I haven't actually picked the unit up yet) because it's missing the spare tire. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum! You will be happy with that camper.

I have a 2008 Surveyor 291. Here is what mine uses....

The tire size will be on the data plate (front street-side corner of the trailer), but mine are 205/75 R14 rated for 1,760 lbs.

As far as battery, I suspect it is 12V unless the previous owners modified it for golf cart batteries, so the answer to that question is, "Any 12V deep-cycle wet-cell (or Marine wet cell) battery that will fit in the battery compartment." Don't buy an AGM or gel battery. The charger will not work safely with one of those types of batteries. That's not a problem though, since the wet-cell batteries are the cheaper ones. My camper requires a Group 24, but I am hoping to upgrade it to accept the much larger Group 31 before the end of the summer.
