These batteries have a much higher amperage rating (not cca). Look them up on the web for the exact figures.
I'll be ordering my solar 2 panel system in a couple weeks. I have one 115 amp hour battery and plan on fabricating a cradle between the trailer tongue for fitting a composite battery box capable of holding two 6 v. Trojan batteries. The 200 watts of solar with a Yamaha EF300iSEB gen should handle my needs. My biggest amp draw comes from the 2 Fantastic Vent fans during warm weather and the furnace motor during cold weather when boondocking.
