Battery Question

Is okay to use the following battery combination:

Chassis starting battery:
Xtreme - Group 27 - CA 810, CCA 650, mins@23amps 175 (Part No. SLI27MDP)

Two House Batteries:
Xtreme Marine/RV Battery - Group 31 - MCA 810, CCA 650, mins@23amps 225 (Part No. SLI31MDC)

This is for a 2000 Winnebago Adventurer 35B with Ford F-550 Chassis

Thanks in advance for your help.

You will get more hours from a pair of six volt batteries for house batteries (such as Trojan 105's), if that matter to you or do dry camping. Else the marine group 31 for house will work and be maintenance free.

The group 27 marine battery for the chassis batty is good if you have electric slides, else a starting only battery is fine.

I use and recommend Wal-Mart auto/marine batteries - priced well, well rated, good warranty, serviced at Wal-Mart's everywhere.

Perfect. Exactly the information I was looking for. I will return the starting battery and get another group 31 as I do have a slideout.

Ensure the group 31 will fit your chassis battery tray - won't fit in mine. I just replaced my group 27 with another group 27, wanted group 31 but was too long by just a bit.

Be sure you have enough room to fit a group 31 battery in your compartment. Some have limited room.

That starting battery has good specs in the 27 size and I'm not certain you really need a deeper cycle battery for the chassis. Your slide is HWH hydraulic, correct?

eta: i was composing my post before I noticed that Vince had cautioned about the same thing. Sorry, Vince.
