House batteries/replacement

Looking for input/advice on replacement batteries(house) for a 2017 Thor Outlaw class A 37RB. As I research "the best " I get conflicting info and confusion on what is a good replacement. I do a fair amount of dry camping and do not have solar hook up on my rig. I ruled out lithium due to cost. Thanks.

for batteries, it's really just a combination of the NUMBER of batteries(amp hours), the state of your batteries(condition/specific gravity reading for each cell), and 'how' you are using them...

DURACELL 6v GC2 batteries are a good value at SAMS or Batteries+Bulbs stores... sometimes on sale at $99 each or less. The more you have, the better, of course.

Solar? Maybe, maybe not. It really depends on 'where' you are 'off-grid'. In the shade, no. In the open, it might help to keep from running the generator as much, but it's not a 'magic pill' to be 'solar only'... that's no reasonable for most of us. It's also not cheap.

Speaking about what we did with the two rigs we have owned. We went from two 12 volt flooded batteries to two six volt AGMs. Spent the additional money for a bit more lasting power and additional battery life. As far as brands go we went with Lifeline batteries.
