What battery is in there now? Make, voltage, size, 20 hour amperage rating?
What converter is in there now? It would help to know about your RV electrical system, 30 amp I assume?

If the battery bay is vented you can go with a flooded, lead-acid battery instead of AGM. This might be an opportunity to evaluate how you use your RV electricity to determine any upgrade opportunities.

If you plan on boondocking fit in as many amp-hours of battery bank as is possible in the space provided. Make sure the battery jars are wired in a balanced manner.
