Thanks! Since I store our trailer off site with no access to power, how many amps would I need to keep them topped off with a solar panel?

Yes but I would recommend group 27 or group 31 for more amp hours

You have shown a dual-purpose battery which is a poor choice for use as either a house or starting battery. It is a compromise. You need a true 'deep cycle' battery for use as a house battery. Most marine batteries (and any other that quotes 'cranking' capacity) are not true deep-cycle batteries.

I would suggest that you look at AGM batteries for best value over time. (not cheapest on initial purchase, just best value over time) No out gassing, mil -spec. I run 2 Life Line 6 volt GPL 4CT

Good luck,
