Question Need New House Batteries

Thought I would try the Exide-MC-31 megacycle AGM-200.

Currently using batteries that I have to check and fill occasionally. Done with that ! Any suggestions would be appreciated

If I read correctly, these batteries are not true deep cycle batteries because they list CCA. Does Exide make true deep cycle AGM batteries?

For about $100 more per battery you could have Lifeline GPL-31 T 12 volt 105 aH
AGM Lifeline is THE gold standard in AGM batteries.

I'd get 6 volt AGMs for the house...12 volt for the chassis.

Deka has a great line of AGM batteries in many sizes,
here is a link to them

East Penn Manufacturing | Recreational vehicle batteries

Less costly than Lifelines, however, there is no question that
Lifelines are the very best. I'd guess that Lifelines are the
ten year batteries, and the Deka Intimidators are 5-7 year

AGM's are better in every way, zero corrosion in the compartment,
and no maintenance plus many other advantages.

Give yourself an early Christmas present and get Lifelines. If you have the space and want 6 volts, then the L16 is for you.
