Batteries, what size????

The batteries that came with our new rig are toast!!!!
Going to purchase new deep cycle RV/Marine batteries, but do not know what size is needed, since the 2 that are in there have no markings on them at all.

They're either group 27 or 29 batteries

Ours were junk and unmarked also. Redwood covered the replacement!

Best batteries found

We changed our batteries a month after we took delivery.

Nothing wrong with the old ones except the location.

Impossible to check the water level so we went with maintenance free (AGM) so no more checking water levels anymore.

Can recommend Optima Blue Top Marine Battery. Strangely enough the D31M fits perfect since this producer makes the outside slightly smaller.

Used Optima in out previous RV as well three years ago and their warranty (then at least) actually worked. Think Optima was bought by Interstate recently but not sure.

We bought them at Blains Farm & Fleet 06JUN14 (416378) and they pricematched Amazon at $206.99/ each plus local tax.

Two 6 volt batteries. We're fulltime so the batteries are being recharged virtually all the time, either by shore power or the truck.

When we change out the batteries, currently planned prior to Alaska, we will get 4 - 6V, which will be hooked up to the solar system.

We had dealer put in 2 Sears Diehard Platinum Marine Group 31 upon delivery. They even had battery boxes on hand to hold them (no extra charge).
