If you do use a remote location you can save yourself from some headache by connecting the load and converter to the positive terminal of one battery and the negative terminal of the other. This negates the issue of the voltage drop tie to wiring between the two batteries. This will require some thought about the wiring method the key is large loads and charging should go through the whole bank rather than jumping the batteries together.

Okay, I have convinced myself I need 2 6v true deep cell AGM batteries, then I can get rid of the vented box and have plenty of room for 2. What is a good "ah" number? The ones I am looking at are 225ah that seems pretty good, but are there better ones out there.

I chose Lifeline Batteries. Four 6V AGM, the biggest I could fit. I had to order them and they are expensive.

I chose the GPL-6CT. It's foot print is 10.28" x 7.06". That's a 300 Ah at 6V so running two Batteries at 12V is also 300Ah. They are heavy at almost 100 lbs each. But more weight means thicker plates and a better battery.

Remember with 6 V batteries in series you only get the amp hours of one.
