Hello guys,
I'm new to the forum, so no one will recognize the name. I did some extensive research concerning batteries, and there is so much 'information' out there, some good, most is supposition rather than fact. I ended up going with a DEKA group, they make MANY,MANY different sizes and use a variety of materials. they specialize in deep cycle batteries, and they are indeed used for many, many things. the Interstate deepcycle/marine battery is actually a hybrid of a true deep cycle and a starting type battery. Expect cost to mirror quality, however, if you are buying 3,4, or 5 batteries (mine uses 6) then an industrial supplier normally would be more than happy to sell them to you at a large discount from retail.
Go here to read excellent info:

your 101 is excellent

Though not written with a lot of technical detail, your 101 is very good. It's a shame to have hidden it in a maintaining batteries threaf rather than a 'buying batteries thread'

Did the pic of my battery set up show up in the above previous third thread? I wanted to show the wiring set up it has.

If you can't see, we can't see it.
With other words, No.
