    Not enough
    2oo5 pre-runner battery finally kicked it. Cold weather, age, new alarm/starter, amps, and I tow a travel trailer didn't help. Plus I leave it sitting for 2-3 mnths alone. Which is why I am here asking your advise. I can't afford to have the thing not start or have a charge for the alarm to protect it. So money is no problem for a battery. Question is which one???

    found a optima yellow for above application.
    Would going with 1000 CCA be better then the 700 one?
    Does size matter? ( I can make it fit somehow)
    What price did you get yours for? I am finding $200 bucks for one...This sounds crazy since it would be about double the price for a good convention one.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    optima batteries are the way to go, they are double the price because they last and have a decent warranty. generally they higher the cca the thinner the plates (or in an optima's case spiral wrap sheets) inside the battery are. they give you a better kick when starting at cold temps but don't last as long.
