Hummingbird Group 27 battery

Hi,

Iím looking to swap out our dealer supplied Group 24 battery for a better one for boondocking trips, which we do often. Does anyone use a Group 27 battery on their Hummingbird? I forgot to take measurements and the bird is in storage. I figure it will fit without doing any mods. Any suggestions on a battery would be welcomed. Iím going for a deep cycle AGM 12 volt. No 6 volts because of the additional tongue weight.
I have this in my sights Carmanah CMH-AGM-100. We use a GoPower 120 solar set up.

Thanks

I replaced my 24 with a 27 from Walmart and a new plastic box from Amazon, without any modification on my 17RK

May consider 6 volt golf car battery. We mostly dry camp just bought 2 interstate 6V. I think the amp hours were like 225. Much better than the two twelves we had! Thanks

I would like to go that route but the tongue weight is already at the limit.

Battery Question. If I am away from power and battery goes dead if I plug into my Truck will I be able to operate slide on my Humming bird.

Yes, with the TV engine running.

To save your TT battery, disconnect it if you are going to be away for a few days.
