But I'll check with the charge controller specs and see if 2 x 6V would work.
Seems the Morningstar Duo (which I just ordered) will do two SETS of batteries, each set could be a pair of 6V I suppose.

As long as we are spending your money; if you get two 6 volt batteries, get Golf Cart batteries, they are designed for more abuse and discharge/recharge cycles than starting or marine type batteries.

Not sure what batteries I'll end up with at this point, but was thinking lately of two type 31 120ish amp hour AGM deep cycles. Only 20 lbs more on the tongue, but lot's more amp hours compared to the 80ah on my current grp 24 flooded. I'll look at the 6Vs and compare at some point. The AGM seem like the thing for me. I know I'll never take proper care of flooded batteries over the long haul, and perhaps more importantly, I want to put one battery in the cabin, so AGM is a requirement there. Not the cheapest option, but I kill batteries dead by blinking, so I may even come out ahead in the long run with the more durable glass mat tech.
