A load of 2 amp on a 75 amp hour trolling battery

Should a load of 2 amp on a 75 amp hour trolling battery should, on paper, last for 37.5 hours? But in fact how long can one draw 2 amp from a 75 amp hour deep cycle trolling battery?

How often can one repeatedly discharge said battery before ruining it?

> 37.5 hours ?

yes, but it's a lead-acid battery... similar to the one in your car..

It can take a lot of repeated dischage cycles, but every one degrades the battery a little...

Time (years) is also a factor ...
