My theory on rv batteries is get the cheap ones and don't worry about them.


Mine also..The last set I had was still going strong at 7 years when I sold the trailer..

I thought about 6-volt for my TC then decided against it..Am thinking 4D right now for the space I have...

Then I can spend my vacation time enjoying the trip, and not fretting about preserving several hundred dollars worth of batteries. The 6 volt deep cycles from sams club were about $75-80 each last time. They were used and abused and 3 years old in my Arctic Fox when I sold it and still working fine.


I agree! I bought inexpensive 6v batteries (Duracell Ultra) from my local Batteries Plus for $90 each 6 years ago and have yet to see a reason to replace them. I almost exclusively boondock camp so they get used often and last much longer than most give credit for.

^And I would too. They're only like $130 now. But they don't fit where I need em to fit.
The point of my thread was I found good capacity 6v's in a different shape "box" that actually fit.
Otherwise, Duracells or Costco batteries would be in there instead.
