You didn't specify house or start battery. but house should be deep cycle and start longest warranty you can afford. I used autozones gold and they replaced no questions when it was less than a year, MH was sitting without being plugged in so it was sort of my fault too.

Are you looking to upgrade? If your old ones were sufficient and are bad due to age why not re-new with the same. Just my 2 cents.

You have some options:
1. larger size battery, or a 2nd battery
2. AGM (no maintainance)
3. 2 6v batteries in series to give you 12

If you do a search you will find more info than you want to know.

Thanks, I need them both. I found the deep cell battery (the small one fits in the compartment) I need the correct start battery size.
