Is there a consensus best chassis battery? Mine died a few days ago and will not take a charge. I can get enough into them with the generator over time to start if I use the boost button but cannot get enough into them with 50 amp over 3 days to be able to use the boost button. They were pretty hot all 3 days on 50 amp. They are 4.5 years old. I have a Cummins ISL 400. 2004 MADP 4301.
While cost is always important, I am more interested in quality and starting power if that makes any difference.

TIA

Ron

Your Gen will take for ever to charge your batteries what you need is a battery charger to get them charged fast.
This Link will have some more info for you.
