Unhappy

$1,000 for 4 Batteries installed?

That is a big rip off.

That is if they are wet batteries.

Didn't the battery warranty cover those batteries? I don't expect CW or Fleetwood to cover a battery.....just like I wouldn't expect them to cover tires, engine, or other "out-sourced" items.

If they gave me a price of $1000 for the four batteries, I'd be too busy laughing at them.....and then heading the road for a more realistic price.

I think they are either Penn or Deka AGM batteries and I would check with the manufacturer. In my Revolution LE I had Deka marine batteries from Harris and they only had a one year warranty. They lasted three years and yes they are expensive to replace since they are 12V AGM batteries. I looked at Lifeline and they were approximately $350 each times four or $1400 for the four, not including installation. If you replaced all four 12V AGM's with AGM's for $1000 including installation, you did good. I do love the AGM's sealed batteries since there is no outgassing and my battery compartment looks as clean as the day it was made. Also they are totally maintenance free. The battery compartment that houses the four house batteries and the two chassis batteries takes up the entire compartment. It would be difficult task especially reaching the back ones to check the water level if you put in "wet cell" batteries plus the "outgassing" in the compartment. All six batteries are AGM and sealed. Buy a good brand and they should last a lot longer than the ones installed as OEM.

this worries me....was just notified from repair shop that 2 of my 4 6-volt trojans were swelled...they thought freezing, but M/H was purchased at Meza, AZ Camping World in Feb. '09......the swelling was probally due to excessive heat, not freezing.... anyway, I have 2 Trojan 105's that went bad... it's likely Trojan won't replace these.. Coach was made in June of '08 so there they are just over a year old. it's a pity, we had them replace the chassis battery, but overlooked the coach batteries... hind site is 20/20.. oh well, it's only money
