DC24 is a common model number for a Deep Cycle battery. Model 24, but genuinely a 12V battery.

If in doubt, put a meter on the terminals.

After sitting that long, the only thing it is good for is core exchange when you buy a new one.

If you are connecting LEDs with bare leads (not a plug ended strip) it might be that you have the leads reversed. LEDs are diodes and diodes will only pass current in one direction - try reversing the leads.

Count the number of cells in your battery.
A cell is where you check the electrolyte level and add water from time to time.
Each cell provides approximately 2 volts.
A 12 volt battery would have 6 cells.

You still need a good battery to operate the emergency brakes incase the trailer becomes disconnected from the tow vehicle going down the highway
