Battery question

Just bought a 2005 28' international. Been abandoned for over a year. It has 2 24v batteries that are dead. Has a 12v convertor. can I use 24v batteries with a 12v convertor......or do I need to replace with 12?

Interesting. I have never heard of 24 volt batteries in an Airstream.

Thanks Michael (AWCHIEF). I am beginning to see that this is my first of many problems with our new purchase.....but we will just chip away one at a time. 24v batteries were the wrong choice. Mahalo (thank you in Hawaiian), Bob
