Battery

2020 3761FL, 2020 GMC 3500 Dually Diesel, Unit came with one 12 volt battery. I would like to run 2 6 volt batteries in series. Solar with 2000 W Inverter. Anyone recommend 4 batteries? Will be doing some dry camping. Brands? Lithium great but don't want to break the bank

I just replaced my four 4 1/2 year old 12s with four Trojan T105 6V AGMs. Were slightly smaller than my 12Vers so they easily fit.

ONE battery with a residential fridge? What is the name of the cheapskate dealer that shorted you a battery?

With a residential fridge, the more battery storage capacity the better. Don't forget the inverter generator

Mike Thompson RV in Calif. Should have demanded 2. Got the inverter, no generator but was thinking a portable one. Recommend a quiet one

Speck,

If you plan to dry camp, 4 or 6 six volt golf cart batteries or compatible lithium are the way to go. You actually saved money by only buying one 12 volt to turn in for core.
