I put this in my 23 foot 5th wheel RV travel trailer. The battery works the front jacks just fine and seems to hold a charge quite well. The battery I replaced was shot, so anything is a improvement. Just to make sure, I had the tech check the status of the new battery BEFORE I left the store. He didn't mind and I KNEW when I left I had a good battery.

                                Happy to help you with your question! To find out if you need to add water would be difficult to gauge without taking off the cap. These batteries are maintenance free so you generally don't need to add water. For a deep cycle batter you would need to replace it when it can no longer hold a charge.

                              I also purchased this battery for my back up sump pump. My battery charger says not to use on a maintenance-free battery unless it is a "Gel-filled" or "AGM" battery. I looked on the specification page, but it does not indicate if it is a "Gel-filled" or "AGM" battery. Can you tell me if it is a "Gel-filled" or "AGM" battery? Thank you.

                                I'm happy to help, JLMorgan! This Autocraft Marine / RV 12-Volt Starting Battery (Part No. M24-1) is a conventional lead-acid battery. This battery is not sealed and the caps can be removed, if necessary, to add distilled water. Advance Auto Parts does carry AGM batteries under the Autocraft Platinum line, as well as the premium Optima batteries and some Autocraft PowerSports batteries.

                                Typically, a deep-cycle battery is the best option for use as a battery backup for a sump-pump. I suggest a battery such as AutoCraft Marine / RV 12-Volt Deep Cycle Battery (Part No. 24DC-1 or 24DC-2) or Optima Blue Top (Part No. D34M-950 or D27M).

                                I'm glad to assist, Dino! You are correct, the caps can be removed to check the fluid and electrolyte level. These batteries are engineered to not require maintenance from the owner, except in more extreme conditions. If you find the need to fill the battery at any time. You may fill only with distilled water (minerals in tap and bottled water will shorten your battery's life). If you fill the battery, make sure to fill no higher than the bottom of the splash barrel or vent well.

                                I do not see this battery available on AdvanceAutoParts.com at this time. I do see AutoCraft Marine / RV 12-Volt Starting Battery, Group Size 24M, 800 CCA (Part No. M24-3) available, which may also meet your needs.

                                I'd be happy to help you with that! The best storage option would be to remove the battery and keep it in a garage or another area free from elements. If your boat does not have the battery exposed to the elements, then you can leave it there as well. The garage would be the best option so that you can check the battery condition and trickle charge it if need be.

                            • Q:

                              Hello I just purchased this battery for a replacement for my battery back up for my sump pump. I just purchased this home and this was the same specs of what battery was already in it. But I noticed the existing battery looked to leak it was wet on the top and there was white bubbles of acid in the bottom of the box so that's why I purchased this new autocraft battery. The back up system I have the battery hooked up to is a Little Giant sump pump backup system 12v output. On the back of the charger which I noticed after the fact says Charge only lead acid type rechargeable batteries. Other types may burst. So my question is will the battery I bought work for this system. Is it rechargeable? I know it lead acid type. Anyinput would help.

                              Can I use this on a 1998 Yamaha Waverunner 1200 GP. The battery I have now has 325 CCA.

                                If the shoe fits, wear it! Since the battery specs exceed your 325 CCA requirement, it will work fine so long as you verify:
                                1. Its case size dimensions fit your allocated box and hold-down.
                                2. Terminal configuration - Battery post connectors size/type, and left or right for +/- cables.
