27M AGM Recommendations for House Battery

Hoping someone might have some recommendations for a replacement House battery.
I presently have a single Deka 93AH house battery which is showing me a voltage of 12.2V.
From what I am reading that is only 50% or so of its capacity so I would like to replace it and I am also looking at now adding a second one as I have added heat in the van and need added capacity.
Would like to keep the same 27M sizing for ease and was hoping someone has some experience possibly with something that might be a little cheaper than the Deka and maybe a good supplier.
Thanks

If you use the "search" button feature and plug your question in, you'll see (at least) a couple of threads where members have been tossing this around for many years...I just replaced mine and found those very helpful deciding what to do and where to get one or two or three....lol Good luck!Here is one of the best:

If you do go REMY, on the website/order area/checkout, there was a $50 coupon I could use right then...

BTW I didn't see the "search" for quite awhile either...DaveB aka "the Creator" told me about it and since, have always started there and found just about everything I have ever had questions about...I mean there are some brilliant members here...I am not one of those but appreciate the lessons/education/help...

Well bit the bullet today and purchased 2 Duracell AGM batteries from Battery Plus.(Not a Sams Club member)
Was able to get 10% off by buying online,and in the end the reason for going with the Duracell is because they have a 30 month warranty and pretty much most other brands I found only give a 12 month.
Thanks ctb and simplesez for your input!
Cheers Roger

I think you’ll find that the Duracell AGM’s at Battery+ are in fact a quality rebranded battery from Deka (East Penn), at least they used to be. It should be on the label.

My 31M Batteries+ Duracell was certainly an East-Penn/Deka when I bought it last year, so I suspect REF is correct.

Hi:
I just went to Sportsmobile in Fresno and had them installed their standard house battery and it is fantastic.
I drove all the way from Boise to have them do it. Also had them put in a new fridge. Did it in less than 4 hours.
