Batteries!

Hi its sunbear again . I have a 24 volt battery in my bus that seems to be getting old and weak. What dobi want to buy? Am I better off with 2 12v batteries in tandem or should I stick to a 24 v and either way what do I specifically look for as far as cranking amps andvso forth?

I doubt that you have a 24v battery. Have a picture?

2 volts per fill cap, haven't seen an 8 volt for about 50 years. If it's about 21x11x11 it's an 8D 12V

I guess that means it could be charged on a regular 12 volt charger then?
