I've got 2 6 V Interstate batterys that are 18 months old & am considering adding 2 new ones to my RV for a total of 4.
Would adding 2 new batterys to the 18 month old battery be NOT advised or will it be OK? I've heard that adding 2 new to 2 old (18 months) could cause ill effects to the newer pair of betterys. What do you think?

Thanks,
Clay

Just my opinion, I'm sure other may disagree. If the the old batteries are in good condition (have them checked by a good battery dealer), then there should be no problem. I added a second identical battery battery to my trailer a year apart and there was no problems with either battery. I also had to to do the same with my truck, and again no problems. In both cases I had the original batteries check and they were both in excellent condition before adding the new ones. If the old ones are in less than excellent condition, then I would replace all of them.
