Your trailer would require a marine deep cycle battery, as opposed to a marine cranking battery. There is a big difference. A cranking battery is designed to start something, like a boat. It will have high cranking amps, with a lower reserve capacity. A deep cycle battery is designed to run something, and will have lower cranking amps, and more reserve capacity. You cvan find reserve capacity and cranking amp rating on the battery label. Also, a true deep cycle battery will say so.

Yes, as this thread is about a TV battery, Optima may be a good choice.

Thought about 'what to do' when I needed 2 new batteries for my 2000 F250 diesel. Though still turning over engine they were 6 years old and I didn't want to get stuck and end up with Interstates. Read all the stories but I wanted a no hassel convenient return policy. That meant plenty of service centers. Walmart was the answer. Got 2 with a 3 year free replacement policy if it goes bad. Best battery I ever owned was a Ford. Lasted 7 years and was still turning over engine.

While I agree A/C delco is a great battery. I have always chosen N.A.P.A. # 7565 for replacement in all my vehicles.

I would advice never useing big box store brands.

I have 2 7565 in my drag car. These batteries get abused. Fast charges as rounds progress. sometimes unable to charge for 3 rounds. I run no alternator. These batteries always preform. I get about 4 years out of them in a hostile enviroment. What ever battery you choose, make sure it is heavy to lift. That meens it has thicker lead plates.

If you store the vehicle , I also reccomend a battery maintainer. Something as simple as one from Harbor Freight. It doesnt have to be expensive.
