RV Battery Capacity Question

Hey Doc, will two, T-105, 6-volt batteries be able to crank over and start a generator on a toy hauler? Frank C., (no city/state) 

Indeed and with plenty to spare Frank! But I assume you mean two, charged batteries, right? Two dead batteries of any make would have trouble. But Trojan T-105s are often used to provide DC power to a whole RV. That’s almost 450-plus amp-hours of storage capacity when configured into a 4-battery, series/parallel set-up and around 220-250 amp-hours when two are simply connected in series. If that generator won't crank, there's something else amiss.
