I am considering a single 200Ah AGM battery that will easily fit. Is there any problem with using just the one battery? I understand the weight of the battery will present an installation problem (just lifting it into place).
We had the same OEM batteries in our Fuse but found that that the compartment for the batteries easily held the Type 31 batteries and that is the size of the Battle Born Lithium batteries. I understand your concern about the cost as I had that as well, but the batteries fit perfectly into the battery compartment on our RV and might well fit yours as well.
I also considered AGM batteries as a replacement but the larger capacity AGM batteries were much heavier than the OEM batteries that came with our Fuse and I worried about the capacity of the compartment to support the additional weight.
In the end I bought the BB batteries and a Renogy DC-DC charger. The cost was about $2700 installed and that is quite a bite, but they fit perfectly and I no longer worry about running out of battery power when boondocking. If your View has the same compressor fridge as our Fuse you are probably using something on the order of 100AH each 24 hour period and those OEM batteries are really too small for that power usage unless you use shore power each night or have a lot of solar panels on your roof.
