Coach Batteries won't hold a charge Lights go dim. Any recommendations on 6V replacements?

I have six Interstate GC-2 6V batteries from Costco. When I bought them 3 years ago they were $84.95 each. We almost always dry camp the batteries have served us very good. We watch Satellite TV in the evening for a few hours make coffee in the morning and watch news for a couple of hours in the morning plus lights. Batteries are still at 12.4V or higher when we finish things in the morning. Are there better batteries, yes but not for the cost from Costco. Before buying them I was not a fan of Interstate batteries but these have been good to me.

I installed six Interstate GC2 from Costco early this year. About $82 each, iirc. Working well.
