Default Deep Cycle Hybrid vs. Cranking

My batteries are about 7 years old and am going to go ahead and replace them. I have a pair of Interstate SRM-27 Deep Cycle's but my local shop only has the Cranking Interstates in stock, I dont have a trolling motor so would the Cranking batts be preferred? Here is what I have now...

Starting battery for starting applications and deep cycle battery for most all other applications.

If given the option of only one type, I would choose the deep cycle battery and use it to start the motor versus choosing a starting battery and using it to supply the house loads.

Interstate normally delivers to their dealers on demand within 24 hours, can you wait a bit for the deep cycles or is it an emergency replacement issue?
Also, 7 years on your present batteries is nice, no complaints on those units!

No immediate need so I will wait to get the Deep Cycle.

I see you also have something that is my pet Peeve.

People building battery cables using good quality cable and good glue lined heat shrink.


BUT Then they drop the dollar to pick up the nickle by using non tinned cable ends.

The bare copper corrode and the moisture will wick under the heat shrink to the cable. Eventually ruining the cable....All because they would not spent a extra $1.50.

I see it all the time
