So the advantages / dis advantages of
1) 2-12volt deep cycle batteries, with a battery switch to toggle usage from one to the other, having one with a trickle charger connection to keep it fully charged, the other will be charged via the TV just as if tit was the sole battery.

vs/

2) 2- 6volt batteries connected in the a series

The other option (that we currently use) is two 12V batteries in parallel. I think the main factor is that two high capacity 6V batteries will usually be less expensive than two high capacity 12V batteries.
