New Breeze Owner - Old House Batteries

Looking for recommended house batteries on my 2013 Allegro Breeze 32BR. I can't find original specs anywhere in the Roughing It Smoothly bag. Battery #1 is in good shape. Second battery was bone dry. And it doesn't appear it will be chargeable.

First off, Welcome to IRV2 and the Tiffin family!

There should be a model number on the batteries or you can measure them and buy comparable 6v deep cycle batteries. If that one battery is totally dry, then chances are one or more of the plates are shorted and your best bet is to replace both.

Welcome to the forum. Congratulations on joining the Breezeway. Info here, on Facebook and on the Tiffin Forum.

Here is one of the several IRV2 threads on House batteries. Use the search box at the upper right to get more options and recommendations.

Since you are new to the coach, I would replace with 2 golf cart 6 volt deep cycle cells from Walmart. If they fail, you can get them replaced at the next Walmart you see. After you have more information and experience with the rig, you can consider a wider range of battery alternatives. Actually, just about any 6 volt deep discharge cells that you can justify purchasing will do the job.

If you can upgrade to a bank of four cells, you may be happier with the capacity.

Consider Lithium?

May be too soon in your ownership to consider the Battle Born lithium batteries, but just throwing this out there. Not sure if you plan to boondock often. The setup, depending on how you go can get quite expensive, but from the many YouTube posts and forum posts, most people are very happy with their purchase. The amp-hr capacity is more in line with the name plate rating than lead acid. Personally I am going to keep my lead acid for now because my rig is new (August buy). But, I will likely go with lithium if I find we are boondocking often and find ourselves often running the generator. Tom
