I appreciate everybody's advice as always. I decided and ordered four Lifeline Batterys today. I have Deka AGM's and they have done me well. I price shopped and came up with the Lifelines and they are here local with no shipping. Should have them by Monday. Thanks again for the responses.

Not sure about the price difference but the Lifeline AGM's have a bit more capacity then the Deka AGM's. 220 AH's compared to 190 AH's. This may or may not be a deciding factor for most. But unless the price is way out of wack, I'd go with the Lifeline's.

It's all relative
It's an expensive(to some)all electric coach. The old Lifelines were 9 yrs old. Their voltage(condition) tested good, but they load tested EMPTY. If you wants to play, if has to pay.
The Lifeline distributor told me he sold Country western singer Clay Walker 17 of these batts for his Prevost.He likes being in it for extended periods of time with the genny off so it looks like he isn't there and doesn't get bothered.
