Battery ID (pic)?

Anyone recognize these batteries (6Volt golf type), they are in a Thor Palazzo. There are no manufacturer stickers or markings on them. Thought Id run it by here before dreading the hassle from customer service.

Do not know the make but if you are replacing them then all you need is a Generic GC-2 Golf Car battery from Sam's or the equivlent of them

The batteries in your photo appear to have been modified by addition of the "Easy Fill" watering system, this should transfer to your new ones as well (The hoses and cell caps).

NOTE: Since there are not six volt batteries in RV's. even though you (And I) clearlly have some,, You replace them in pairs.. Because what you have there is a 2-piece 12 volt battery.

Like this

12 volt battery {Battery}
6 Volt pairs {Bat}t{ery}

If you think of them this way many questions go POOF like magic.

There are numerous private label GC2 batteries, but only a couple companies actually making them. Those are flooded cell rather than AGM, so that narrows it down to US Battery or Johnson Controls, and both of those manufacturers are excellent at the GC2 type. Trojan also makes flooded cell GC2, but they never sell under a private label and their cases are dark red.

Flooded cell GC2's come in two basic amp-hour capacities, either 210 or 230 AH. If you never boondock, choose the lesser one and save a few bucks (and a few lbs of weight). Otherwise get the 230 AH size. Sams Club and Costco have excellent prices on them.

If you want less maintenance, change to AGM Gc2. No water to check & add, but they cost about double.
