Trojan T105 or T105RE

Hi guys!

Got my very first pop up tent trailer, Jay Series 1207 and need to replace the Interstate deep cycle battery. I am considering running 2 Trojans based on what I've read over the last day.

We do quite a bit of dry camping and want to be sure I can last for at least 2-3 days.

I am not running solar currently and may or may not in the future.

Would you recommend the standard Trojan T105 for my needs?

I have not run the refrigerator and not sure if I really intend to. Want to be able to run the water pump, use the lights on and off at night and the fans periodically.

I also noticed I could not work the wall outlets to work when just on DC power. Is that normal? Do I have to be plugged in for those to work?

Thank you!

Wall outlets are 120, you need to be hooked to shore power. The T105 will be good batteries or the same sized Interstate. Costco might be a good source for price and selection.

None of my outlets work on battery power, I am relatively sure you would need a generator for AC power while dry camping unless you purchase an inverter and a higher DC voltage battery bank.
