Sunseeker 3170ds need to replace battery

Presently 1 12 volt size 27 wet. Thinking of replacing with 2 6 volts? Should I stay with 1 or go to 6 volt? Wet or agm? Thanks

Does yours go under the steps? My 2012 does and mine came with the optional dual 12v batteries. I recently replaced mine with 27 series Optima's. I took a picture before I unhooked them so I knew how to hook them back up. Let me know if you need the picture.

What are your goals? Trying to extend battery time for dry camping? Do you only have room for two batteries?

A pair of 12v AGM would provide the most capacity while eliminating water checking/filling. Also of course the most expensive. A pair of 6v wet would provide more capacity than the single 12v, but not by a large amount. Adding another 12v wet would likely provide the most capacity for the dollar spent.
