Hello, I have a single battery on my trailer, not sure how old it is but I have owned the trailer for 3 years and have not replaced the battery. It charges but doesn't last very long if using the battery for lights. If I need to replace it, would you recommend a marine battery? Just get it from the farm store? Thanks Joan

I needed batteries for each of my trailers. A little time spent on the internet resulted in a substantial savings from the farm store and free shipping. Just type in the model # of your present battery and you'll find several pricings that will vary depending on the quality and warranties.

Batteries come in several flavors. A marine battery is a compromise between starting (high current draw) and deep cycle. For trailer lights I would purchase a deep draw type battery. Running a battery down to its last amp of energy is damaging to a regular starting battery. I learned this the hard and expensive way.
