Battery Brand and Type

After 2 seasons with our 2015 V-Series 3805, the factory battery has gone to the everafter. SInce I will be storing the unit on shore power over the winter months, I am not in a hurry to replace the battery until spring - but was curious what you experienced and knowledgeable folks would recommend as a good, quality replacement for the OEM battery that came with the unit. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Some of us will suggest two six volt real deal deep cycle batteries. Not marine/heavy duty sold in the big box stores, they aren't true deep cycles.
Any battery that lists mcca or cca amps isn't deep cycle.

How much to you want to spend?

My recommendation in most cases are the Trojan T105 dual 6 volt or failing that the two biggest Trojan 12v that will fit the case. If you want to spend money look at getting the AGM. However with proper care I think that the T105 are the best bang for the buck.

I got a 12v deep-cycle from Walmart since the battery that came with it was junk, sad to say.

Tom, That's an expensive battery. I'm surprised if they expect it to last ten years that they only offer a one year warranty.
