What is the standard best battery I need to replace these. One other thing jumped off the cab battery and started rv , now the steps don't come in. went back a week later and all batters were dead. Do I have problem or just need new batteries
“House batteries are always dead... Not a good thing for flooded lead acid batteries. Each time shortens the life.
Need to do something different going forward.
Insure use/store is in Store if not using the rig / not plugged in...
Some (many?) people report use store is not a complete disconnect - consider a cutoff switch at batteries.
Chassis battery is ‘normal vehicle battery rated for CCA - cold cranking amps.
Coach battery is deep cycle - still not meant to be drawn all the way down.
