Die Hard deep cell RV batteries

Well the 23tr is 2 years old. First year sitting on dealers lot and one year in our possession, disregarding warranty line up at the dealer of 90 days. Last week I noticed the coach batteries would not hold a charge. After being plugged in for 24 hours to house current they registered 11.4 volts. I assume one cell is dead??? I have used Die Hard batteries for years in both truck and boat but never had them in an RV. And yes, I have maintained distilled water levels since purchase.
Who out there has used Deep Cell Die Hards in their RV and how would you rate the service. I am planning to stay with the 12 volt batteries. We do much more travelling than camping and almost never boondock, but that could change.

This is a good time for this conversation: Stored rigs are being pulled back out in the Sunlight...

...And I'm also very curious about the answers!

(I'm ALSO sorry to hear that your batteries only lasted a year... )
