2000 Winnebago Ultimate Freedom 40JD Chassis Battery

It looks like I'm going to need some new chassis batteries for my 40JD. I brought them in to get tested last fall, and the place that tested them decided they were not good and sent them into recycle before I could get the pertinent information from them I'm having trouble finding the specs for finding suitable replacement. Can anybody give me a clue on what batteries I need to get for this RV?

Most likely they were Group 31 top stud batteries, 1000 amp CCA. Check the battery cable ends before you purchase replacements. If the cables were held on with a nut and washer onto a threaded stud on the battery, they are "top stud" batteries. The other configuration is a top post. Take a picture of the cable end with you when you go shopping. That will insure the sales person sells you the correct battery.

Thanks for the great information Fleetman!

Does anybody have any idea on what battery dimension would fit into the allotted area for these batteries?

I'll go measure mine in the morning, since I have the same MH. I know mine are Exide lead-acid, but can't remember the size or group #.
FWIW, I think you make the 6th Ultimate owner on irv2.com, and there were only 472-I think, built, all between 1999 and 2004.

Finally got back to you. My house batteries are Exide part#31MDCST. They measure 13 1/4" long, 6 5/8" wide, 8 1/2" tall + posts are 1" tall, totaling 9 1/2". This is the tallest the compartment will hold and still have room to work with the cables. They say "RC 200AH".
My starting batteries are Interstate group 31 batteries. Specifications are on that site.
