    If you have room, multiples of 6 Volt Higher amp batteries will last longer and give much better service, will cost a lot more though.

    Just put 4 on mine and last about 3 days running including the heating and TV so not bad, want to see how long they last without the heating running.

    All the best Rick.

    i ended up getting 1 large 180amp battery from lucas /alpha batteries for £124.99 delivered next day delivery , as space was tight and it was a job to get 3 batteries under the back of the van, plus i can do away with the connecting leads now

    Buy a proper traction battery- Trojan, Dyno, Hawker, CMP or similar.
