Odyssey batteries

I have a 2011 Itasca class A gas. We use our rig all the time. I need to replace my house batteries. We are not normally parked in regular campgrounds, so we depend on our batteries a lot. Are the Odyssey batteries worth the price. Would love to hear from some people that have them.

Thanks in advance for everyone's comments

In an answer NO A they are not true deep cycle B since they are no longer made in the US quality has dropped. I chose a 150AH Lifeline AGM, there are others.

VMAX Charge Tank, Fullriver and Lifeline from least expensive to most, but not necessarily from good to better to best. If you depend on your batteries you want them to last. These fit the bill.

The SLR125 is a 12 volt Group 31 battery.
The MB6225 is a 6 volt GC2 or golf cart battery.

I can't help,you with the Odyssey brand but here are some tips I've picked up from the various forums.
Be very carefull of those labeled as "Marine deep cycle". Many of these are not true deep cycle but rather a cross between a deep cycle and starting battery. They will not hold up nearly as well as true deep cycle.
Typically 6 volt wet cell golf cart batteries are the least expensive for the amp-hours you get (takes two for a 12 volt system). Next is probably 6 volt AGM followed by 12 volt (make sure true deep cycle) AGM batteries. Top of the heap is the new Lithum-Ion batteries, very expensive but would love to have some.
I think for most people it's all about how many amp-hours you can fit in the space available and how much they're willing to pay.
For me, I'm perfectly happy with our stock 6 volt wet cell. Checking the water every few months is not a big deal.

The caution about marine deep cycles is correct they do not have plates that are as heavy and they will not last as long. There is no difference between a 12V vs two 6V of a given Amp Hour. Odyssey does not make a true deep cycle battery and you have only do a search on Odyssey problems. Deep Cycle Battery FAQ
