We've put in one with "845 cold-cranking amps", battery-speak and basically unintelligible to me, but reportedly a good battery. We're still here, cables didn't reach or were on the wrong side or something and had to be replaced, etc.

I expect we're going to get a bit better performance out of our coach battery when dry camping now.

Thanks for the help.

🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚

cca is starter battery terminology.

there should also be info on "rated cap. amp. hrs / 20 hr rate" and "minutes of discharge" at various loads...

my guess is this one is ~ grp 27-grp 31 size with about 100 "amp hours" of capacity...

ONLY 1/2 of which should be used before REcharge...

this means about 2-3 days/nights of USEABLE time depending on loads...

so it will still need to be recharged every 2-3 days, unless demand is kept in check.

it's NOT a good thing to let yer display drop into the RED zone without promptly REcharging...

i think.

all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.
