Batteries

I have a 2016 PassPort with 1 12v battery I need to replace, it's the original battery and isn't working properly. We do not boon dock very much but am considering going to 2 12v batteries size 27 instead of replacing the sixe 24 12v that is on now. The bigger size would give me more reserve amps without going to 6v batteries which would cost more. Looking at Interstate deep cycle batteries. Also would the maintenance free be better than the regular?

If you boondock any at all then 2 series 27 12v batteries would be good... Not as good as 2 6v but better than one battery..

I'd suggest looking at Walmart for your batteries... Good warranty and you can get it done in nearly every little town...

I will probably never boondock but I do use a series 27 Walmart deep cycle... just make sure you buy the DEEP CYCLE and not the Deep cycle / Cranking battery

I have had Interstates for many years,,all batts are made in china, and not to worry they all have the rate shown and have a great back up . get 2 --27 and be good.

I have a 2018 passport 2520 RL when I added additional battery I had use a saws-all and cut the side angle irons off . Then I was able to mount 2 group 27 battery boxes .

I would make sure you get group 27 boxes. Walmart’s in their store stock an adjustable battery box that works for a 24,27 or 31 battery they are way to big unless you are using group 31 battery’s .

Just my thoughts

I couldn't get 2 - 27 batteries installed due to the boxes. I took them back and got 2 - 6v batteries (fit in 24 boxes). About the same cost, but a lot more power. Costco has awesome prices on the GC 6V batteries.
