Not to mention that Costco will exchange your air in your tires for hydrogen, also.

The difference between Amp Hour Capacity and Reserve Capacity is kind of like Apples and Potatoes, two totaly different things that really don't relate

The differnce between Interstate and Kirkland batteries.... I'm not sure of

I know Interstate are made by a company called Johnson Controls

I also know that SOME costo batteries have the J.C. label on 'em

I'm not sure who makes Kirkland but I'd not be surprised at all to find they are Johnson Control batteries.

In short, there may be no difference

NOTE: if you use 2 of 'em and if the taller six volt golf car battery will fit.. Consider it, 220 to 232 (Depending mostly on who's measuring) when properly hoked up

Just remember

With pairs (or more) of 12 volt batteries you hook 'em up like this


With pairs of six volt it's...


(that t in the middle is a jumper wire)

and you think of the pair... as one {BATTERY}

(that is a single big 12 volt battery)
Home is where I park it!

Which Batteries

I found a local industrial battery supply (where we buy batteries for the aircraft at work) and they had some golf car battery factory blems - brand new but with some cosmetic issues. I bought them for $35 / each, 210 amp hours etc. Wired up easily, great results. Just an idea.

I also took the opportunity to instal a battery disconnect. The old "while I'm at it" phenomenon.

My 6v "golf cart" battery from Costco in Tucson had a reference to Johnson Controls on a label. The plastic case looks like it came out of the same mold as the old Trojans I replaced except for the color. I did not get good performance or life out of the Trojans probably because they had been neglected and were almost dry when I bought my used motor home. Trojan and other top line brands may have better or more refined plates or paste on the plates to justify higher cost--I don't know. With any battery, maintenance is the key.
