If this battery is for a RV you really need a deep cycle battery for longevity and more sustained power available. Starting batteries are designed for short bursts of energy.

Interesting...
CA/CCA and MCA are all different.

Testing my 2 24DC's took out of camper checked water OK, charged for 3 days left off charger for 24 hours. Voltage shows fine but the capacity shows 40% or less

Tool used HF Capacitance Tester

The ratings are different from site to site..
Some sites say MCA 625 another site says MCA 690, some say CCA 690 and another says CCA 525.

I can't say I'm impressed with the battery. Especially when they don't label them completely to industry standards!. I purchased camper used and seller installed two cheapos.

The Group24 batterys have an AH rating around 80AH, which is not that great for RV use.
