I bought my two 6 volt batteries at Costco about three years ago. Still working great.

I bought them there for a couple reasons.....Good return policy and the fact there are Costco's all over the country so if I had a problem while traveling I was never to far from a solution.

Read the link to the airstream forum. My Costco GC battery's have a sticker rated at 225 amp hours. I can run my Samsung ref for 2 days thru my inverter before charging is needed.

I have them in my Class A Toy Hauler...and the correct one for the 12VDC Chassis battery too.

I have had no issues, the price is right, and the return policy can't be beat...not prorated, but free replacement if brought back within the warantee period!

Best luck

This summer a smaller Costco near us was streamlineing stock and fired their 6 volts out the door at $50 per. I bought the three they had and then had to make a 2 hr. drive for the fourth at full price. Keep in mind there are very few battery manufacturers around anymore. Most batteries are made by Johnson Controls, they then slip any name they think you would like to buy one from.
