My DC27 (Deep Cycle) lasted for over 6 years and I only got rid of it because I was worried it would have to 'die' one day and I did not want it to be when I was away.

I replaced it with AGM Deep Cycle !!

When you read the various battery manufacturers technical specs they will give you some guided information as to what type of battery to use to run a fridge.
After all they have to warrant the product, if they say one battery is better, ie: longer warranty running a fridge than another, then they must know something some others don't know.
It's a bit like going to your Doctor for serious medical advice, then talking to the milkman and disregarding your Doctors original advice :-)
