Nilsson V3000 Windless 12 volt power supply?

I need some advice, a few years ago I refurbished a Nilsson V3000 windless with Nilsson new Italian 12 volt DC 1200 w motor and adapter kit plus forward and reverse solenoid.

The question I should have asked, and never did, is, what CCA battery's type do I need to operate this mix of the boat requirements?

At the moment I have all deep cycle AGM battery's (that will need replacing soon) The a house bank is 500 Amp, and the engine is 200 amp. Both banks can be connected to total 700 Amp. (All are Deep Cycle) Before I do the upgrade of the battery banks to run both houses, diesel 51 hp engine starter and windless.
What should I buy as a replacement apart from flood batteries?

NOTE: Charging is through 420-watt Solar panels recharge both banks, ( I may upgrade it to 700 watts), the top up is with an engine 120 amp alternator.

Thanks for your advice in advance.

what is your question? hook it up to either bank. either will be more then sufficient. especially if the alternator is running.

never combine the engine and house unless you really need too.
