Re: Trojan T1275 in Stbd Settee battery bank location
I hear you. I read Mailsail's threads and the info on his Marine How-To site. Very informative. I know the 6V GC batteries will last longer, all else being equal, but I think the 12V GC is a good compromise given my expected sailing conditions. Realistically, my boat will be on shore power at least 350 days of the year so I don't expect I will see the deep cycling frequency of a cruiser spending a large number of days on the hook. Even then, I still wonder if a couple of group 27 fake deep cycles would be acceptaeble for my expected conditions. But I don't mind spending some extra coin on good batteries.
