Deep cycle vs starting

I've read battery articles in RV publications that explain the difference between deep cylcle batteries and automotive starting batteries. Basically the RV batter has fewer but heavier lead plates while the stater battery has more lighter plates. The starter batteries lighter but mor abundant plates gives higher aperage for short periods but don't stand up well to repeated deep discharging. Meanwhile the deep cycle batteries larger lead plates stand up better to deep discharge and recharge cycles but offer less instant heavey load amperage.
