Furthermore there, how do you monitor RV batteries on a budget?
Whatever the case, how do I monitor my deep cycle battery?
To accurately check this, you can use a battery monitor. Battery monitors can tell you how much charge a battery has left and sometimes even more. The ANCEL BA101 Professional 12V Digital Analyzer can tell you how much charge the battery has, the health, cranking power, voltage, and more.
Is there a difference between deep cycle and marine battery?
Marine Deep Cycle Batteries are designed to discharge slowly over a long period of time and to withstand several hundred charging and discharging cycles. ... Marine Dual-Purpose Batteries combine the performance of starting and deep cycle battery, and are a good choice on smaller when there's no room for two batteries.

Weize Lifepo4 Battery Lithium Iron Phosphate 100ah 12v, Built-in BMS Up to 7000 Deep Cycle Rechargeable Battery Perfect for RV/Camper, Marine, Overland/Van, and Off Grid Applications System
BMS stands for "Battery Management System" - the brain of our deep cycle battery. Our BMS protects your battery from most common causes of battery failure, such as temperature volatility or ground faults. The BMS regulates the amount of power taken out of the battery and acts as a shut-off system to protect the cells (and you) from unsafe operating conditions.
Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4): Lithium phosphate cells are incombustible in the event of mishandling during charge or discharge, they are more stable under overcharge or short circuit conditions and they can withstand high temperatures without decomposing. When abuse does occur, the phosphate based cathode material will not burn and is not prone to thermal runaway. Phosphate chemistry also offers a longer cycle life.

Properly maintained deep-cycle batteries should last for 6 or more years. Unfortunately some RV owners replace RV batteries every year or two. Extending battery life is not difficult; it just requires some basic care & maintenance.
A voltage meter provides RV owners with an easy method of checking on their batteries. A deep-cycle lithium-ion battery has an output of 12.73-volts. When the battery reaches 50%, the reading is 12.10-volts, and when the battery enters the critical area of below 20% charged, it displays a reading of 11.66-volts.
A voltmeter can be used to get a quick snapshot of the state of charge of any battery type. A fully charged 12 volt battery will have an open circuit voltage of around 12.6 volts depending on the type, and a battery is considered fully discharged when the voltage drops to 10.5 volts at the 20 hour discharge rate.
Battery monitors work by means of a shunt installed between the negative post of the battery bank and the “load” (that is, all of the electrical devices). For one to correctly track amps in and out, nothing can be connected directly to the negative side of the battery bank other than the shunt.
