Argosy Battery

Folks,

When I got my Argosy 24 it didn't have a battery. The ground wire post connector is missing and the slide-out tray is missing. Does anybody know what size (battery group) will fit in the battery compartment?

I belive that all of the Argosy trailers with single-battery compartments utilized the group 24 Marine/RV Deep-Cycle battery. I know that I had hoped to buy a new battery for my '78 Argosy Minuet at the International Rally in Lansing, but the vendor didn't have any group 24 batteries - - the newer Airstream coaches tend to utilize the group 27 batteries.

Good luck with your coach!

Kevin
