New LifePO4 12V10A batteries. Yesterday(oat 42 F), running everything in my 29 for 4 hrs and 40 minutes, remaining volts showed 12.7. The charge time was 42 minutes at 5 amp charge( they will even take a higher charge rate). Total charged amps was 2.8 amps(I have a charger which shows all sorts of stuff). batteries stayed cool during charge.
