Chassis Batteries - What brand did you use?

We have owned our 2004 Diplomat 5 1/2 years now and I decided to replace the chassis batteries. The previous owner said they were replaced by the dealer when he purchased the coach in 2008 and I took his word for it since I could not find a date on the battery anywhere without taking them out. We are preparing the coach for our summer trip and decided it was time to replace them as we don't want to break down on the highway. As it turns out the date on the side of the batteries was H3 which I figure is August 03. Since this is an 04 coach I presume these were the original batteries. We have Interstate Workaholic 31 LHD batteries and needless to say they gave us great service. I ordered identical new batteries at BatteriesExpress.com for $124 each and I must pick them up at the nearest location about 30 miles away. We replaced our 6 volt batteries 3 years ago.

I always use COSTCO batteries. They replace them free within 12 months, they are reasonably priced and are available nationwide . They Interstates !

I'm hoping that Costco can get 4 8D AGM batteries! One of the big marine supply places wants $800 each, another wants $649 and I can get them shipped in from TX for less than $500 each.
