The coach batteries need to be replaced. North Trail is selling Discovery brand AGM batteries. A Google search is not showing me anything about this brand. Anybody have experience with this brand of battery?
thanks,

Gary my first instinct is to avoid any product that cannot be researched on the internet. It sure will hard to get service anywhere other than the place of purchase.

Is it this outfit? http://www.discover-energy.com/products/batteries

That's all I could find on http://jgdarden.com/batteryfaq/batbrand.htm

Usually Bill Darden has the factory source on his web page but not this one.

Well so much for google, funny how a slight difference in spelling can render such different results.

I was surpried too. Almost always I can pretty much butcher the spelling of what I am looking for and Google comes through with good results.

All batteries are made by just a handful of manufacturers (Exide, East Penn, Johnson Controls, etc), so they undoubtedly are one of the big names re-branded with the Discover label. Harris, a major east coast distributor of batteries carries the entire Discover line, so they must not be a small time label. I could not find anything to tell me which manufacturer is actually making batteries for Discover Energy, though.

I have never heard of Discover AGM batteries and their website is very confusing. I used their search option and looked for RV AGM batteries. It said No Found.

They may be quality batteries, but I wouldn't buy them. I think Concorde Lifeline AGM batteries are the best you can buy.

Batteries are one of the things that I would buy a name brand that I was comfortable with.

To me, it's not worth any initial savings to take chance on an unknown product.
