You will want a Deep Cycle RV battery. You want the biggest one that will fit into your battery compartment. Probably a size 24.

I have learned that the generic "Deep Cycle" battery is often a hybrid between a starting battery and a true deep cycle. If the battery specs list "CCA" (Cold Cranking Amps), you know that the battery is built to provide the huge flood of electricity that a vehicle starter requires.

Spend a little time looking at articles about "true deep cycle batteries" and/or sites about solar.

If you don't really want to dive that deep, I've used Interstate 12v batteries with great all-around results.

I use Napa Marine batteries. Is your battery inside the back cabinet? That is where mine was on my 2003 T-139. I moved it to the tongue -- I built a rack for two group 31 batteries, enclosed in battery boxes. This increased tongue weight (a good thing, as long as you don't overdo it). It also meant that I did not have to worry about battery gas inside the trailer.

This is what I use ... GREAT BATTERY!

Also, shop around as there are better (lower) prices available.
