House battery

would a 12 volt 685 amp battery be enough for the house side of my 1979 delta Higgins class c motor home?

How are they measuring the "amps", if it's CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) then it's a starting battery and not a good choice. You need a deep cycle battery and they're measured using a long term discharge rate.
Our house batteries are rated at about 230 amp hours (meaning they have that much power over a 20 hr period) and weigh about 130#'s each.

Here's some info: http://www.doityourselfrv.com/best-r...osing-reviews/
