Sorry no experience with it.. but if you see a CCA rating anywhere on the battery it is not really suitable for boondocking.

2004 Chev Silverado Duramax optioned past the max. 2009 Jayco Eagle 308 RLS 765 watts of solar, 6-6 volt batteries (696 amp hour), 2000 watt (4000 surge) whole house inverter.

I do not have experience with that particular battery but I do have a 2012 1007. I have a group 27 deep cycle for the battery and one 35 watt solar panel and for a weekend we are good to go. we did change the interior lights to leds for less draw and do run the furnace and water pump a little and the battery is sufficient. if it was really cold weather it would not be enough though and in that case two batterys would probably not be enough. congratulations on the new camper , we really like ours.
