Auxiliary or house batteries 6 volt

I need to replace the two 6 volt batteries in my 2004 Pace Arrow 37-C. Should I get golf cart batteries or are there other 6 volt batteries that I should get? Don't know if there are "other" 6 volt batteries or not. Thanks for your help.

You want " deep cycle " batteries to replace the 6 volt batteries in your coach , and golf cart batteries are the best, 6 volt deep cycle batteries out there.

Some Sams Club and Costco outlets in areas with a lot of golf courses carry them, in the $85 range. If you do a lot of boon docking then you might want to spend the extra for Trojan Batteries with the higher amp hour rating , but those will run $135 and up.

I installed six 6 volt interstate brand batteries from Costco at the beginning of the year. Have dry camped several weeks with them. Working fine.

That's what I was asking, if deep cycle was what I wanted. Thanks, we don't do boon docking.

Its worth the extra to buy good ones. Golf cart batteries are deep cycle. They tend to be on the high end. Trojan t 105 are good ones.

I just replaced the factory original 12V batteries with these 6 V golf cart batteries from Batteries Plus Bulbs. 230 AH for $107 each. Made by East Penn and branded for Duracell. Order online and save 10% and pick up at your local Batteries Plus Bulbs. I added the Flow-Rite watering system as well.
