I guess I purposely left my question broad as I wanted to tap into the various options that folks are using. With that info I could then adapt that info to my needs.

Appreciate your reply.

I didn't see the 201AH noted in the config actually. I have two 12v Deep Cycle Batteries.

Regarding the solar comment. After an 8 day trip, 2 days of boondocking, I found that my ONE battery (at the time I used only one battery) was fully charged when I pulled it and stored it for the winter. Thus, driving time in the truck and parked at hookup sites kept my one battery fully charged. But I want to do more boondocking and that's why I'm adding a second battery. I have a 1600/2000 watt portable generator handy if needed. I'd love to go solar, but haven't seen the need since we use so little elec power ourselves.

Actually you can get non standard sizes in all kinds of amp hour configuration. Closest "normal" 12v battery to 210 amp hours would be an 8D @250ah and 150 lbs.
