I have a 2011 Jaco Greyhawk.
It has only one coach battery.It's the original battery that came with the rig brand new. It's failing and I need to get a new one. Does anybody know what size/kind it is?? It's in storage and I'm going to replace it today. Would like to purchase a new on on the way..
Any help would be appreciated..
Thanks

Probsbly a GP24 dual starting charging battery. Not the best. If its in storage, leave it till spring. No reason wasting a good battery just sitting.

They are series 65 batteries

Mass marketers sell them from $50 up to $100 or so.

It depends, is it on a Ford, Chevy, or other chassis.

Just generally speaking, you will save yourself many headaches by removing the old part first, and bringing it with you when you buy the replacement. Not just on a battery, but on most anything. Then you know for sure you're getting the right part.

That's what I would do.

It's Ford but it's the coach battery that is bad. It's 8 years old, so I guess I got my moneys worth..

Why not measure the battery compartment then buy a deep cycle 12v battery within those dimensions ? Measure the compartment height too.
That way you can replace that old battery with an equal or maybe a little larger one if you have the need.

Take a pic of the old battery hooked up so you know which wires go to the proper posts on the new battery.

Doing it that way also means you don't pay the core charge and have to lug it back to the same store later for the refund.

Measure your battery compartment, you possibly could upgrade to 2 batteries, i have a 2015 ford chassis and have 2 group 27 batteries and they do great, it came with 2 group 24 and they would hold up.
