need help with battery questions

I am replacing my 6 volt batteries and have found I think to be good battery replacement and just wonder what others think. I am looking at Duracell 6 volt GC2 215 AH 4 of them. Will the 215 AH be a degrade from the Interstate 6 volt GC2 232 AH where it would a difference that I should stay with the 232 AH?
Thanks

Obviously the more amp hours the more you can rely on the batteries to provide power.

Try looking at Sam's and/or Costco and check the amp hour rating. If you don't mind buying the best then look up "Lifeline" They make a superb battery and you can mount them any which way as they're sealed.

I made similar change to Costco Interstate GC2. The practical difference inconsequential, imho. Also realize you are going from old to new batteries...

On paper you will be minus 17AH usable battery power. In the real world ?????. Most people want more more more. Depends on your individual RVing, boondocking, always at resorts if you need maximum. If you never run out of battery they will do fine, if you do run out of battery power go for more or at least same as now.
