If you have to stick with a Group 24 to fit the box I've had great luck with my Interstate SRM-24. Have had it for 8 years and it's still kicking, takes minimal water when I check it a couple times a year.
Also worth looking at may be the Trojan 24TMX, harder to find though. No direct experience but folks seem to think Trojans are the best. About $20-30 more then the Interstate.

Might want to measure the insides of the box to see how big of a battery you can fit in it, Larry says it's a single group 24 (11" x 6 7/8" x 9 1/2")

I see we can order a Trojan 24TMX 12v for $158 total from Webosolar, so I think we'll go with that.

My Scamp, motorhome and slide in camper all have group 27 or 29 deep cycle Wal-Mart batteries.
The oldest is my Mo Ho house battery and it's 6 years old.
My slide in camper battery is 5.
The Scamp battery is 3 year's old as it didn't have a battery when I bought it.
The only battery I ever had go bad was in my 16' camp about 6 years ago.
I took it back and they replaced it with no problems.

The most expensive was the group 29, it was about $90.00.
They've never let me down.

Are you going to ship it back if it goes bad and wait for a new one?

Thank you guys soooo much for sharing your knowledge. I have never heard of a desulphinator before. Had to google that one. Learn something new everyday. Our camper had a battery but it's been sitting up so I have no clue if it'll even take a charge. Going to try and see though.
