    Hi all, my original (amazingly) 2003 battery has finally died, it may had died a while back as we are always on mains but after being stood at home i noticed no lights work !

    I plan to remove the restrictive size OEM fitted wooden battery box to buy a bigger battery and place in a new plastic battery box.

    Any suggestions on brand/type seller please ?

    if you do a bit of off hookup camping then the bigger the better i put 2 x 155ah traction batteries on mine and can last around 2 weeks static without hook up in winter with careful lighting and tv use. and should hopefully do better when i get the second solar panel on in the spring.

    if you mainly use hookup sites etc then anything that will last you a long weekend will be fine.

    really minimum requirements want to be a single 110ah battery.

    Cheers thats great, we mainly do 240 but would like the 12v also to be fully useable.
    I have found a new 110ah for £74.00 inc delivery which seems ok.

    Don't know where your battery box is fitted,but on my 2004 if you open the rear locker there is a piece of ply when lifted reveals a fibreglass tray.I bought 2 110 amp batts and they fit in with ease, if you could get one it would be an easy DIY fit.

    Finally got a 110ah jobby, took out the small factory fitted wooden box and bought a plastic holder which seems more secure and fitted to the left of the area.
    Pictured as i believe battery locations vary on the Apache.
