Hi Biz, we have 4 6v batts in our coach, just replaced our Interstates with 4 new Interstates from Costco. They've given us good service over the past few years.

We originally used the Trojan T-105's but they've become rather proud of their batteries as evidenced by their higher price.

Good luck with your choice and safe travels,

In our last coach (Weekend Warrior SLC 3905 fifth wheel), I replaced the two 12V house batteries with four 6V golf cart batteries from Costco. That was the best investment/upgrade I ever did. We always had plenty of battery life and the batteries lasted for years.

My only complaint is that corrosion on the batteries seemed happen more frequent than on the 12V. Every few months I had to clean the cables and terminals. Other than that, they worked great.

I'm now trying to figure out how I can get four 6V batteries on our new ACE

After studying my options, I replaced my 4 GC batts with Sams Duracells for $320 plus tax..only 4 months ago but I think they will be fine for years...
