Yes, a deep cycle would be very good.
Here is some good reading:
One thing, if the converter is bad again, you may not need to change it out. Inside the converter should be 1 or 2 fuses, these will blow if, for example, you hook the batteries up backwards. If the battery is shorted, the fuses in the converter could had blown protecting the converter.
