Re: replacing starting battery

Starting a small diesel isn't a big deal, any full size deep cycle battery will be able to handle it. So I'd say have them both load tested. Replace one or both as needed, with deep cycle battery(s). And try not to cringe at the price of replacing lights (all of them) with LEDs, because LEDs pay for themselves with all the power they save.
