Default Battery for T-139

I may have an opportunity to buy two Autocraft deep cycle 24DC-1 12v batteries (550CCCA) for about $100 each. Would these work for my T-139? If they would, it seems like a "steal" for virtually "new".

Yes they will work. Assuming your trailer is set up for dual 12V batteries. But how do you intend to use your trailer? If you plan to camp mainly where electricity is available you probably only need one.
Also, a google search for that battery lists the price at $89 new + $22 for the refundable core charge. So $100 for a used battery may not be a 'steal'.

Also, any type of flooded lead acid battery should not be stored inside the trailer because they can omit gasses when being charged. Best to keep them on the tongue of the trailer. Also, 100 bucks for used 24 sized flooded deep cycle battery is not a deal since you can probably purchase them cheaper new.

I have two group 31 batteries on the tongue of my X-139. One is in use, and the other is a spare. I swap them out every few days. And my 120 watt portable solar panel keeps the batteries topped up, almost all the time.

No worries, we all had to learn sometime.
