I buy my AGMs from a local car dealer who stocks pallets of blemish batteries. Scratches on the case, no lables. Typically last 5-6 years, but at $80 bucks each, well worth the price.

The OEM Interstate U-2200's in our '02 Dutch Star lasted 10 years and were still good enough to go all night with lots of TV, Direct TV box, lights and heat.

Lifeline 6 volt AGMs

6Volt Lifeline AGMs. Awesome customer support... you can pick up the phone and have a Lifeline guy tell you anything you want to know and he's NOT having to look it up... he knows his stuff. Made in the USA. Even though they cost more, batteries are one of those categories where you get what you pay for. After 4 years of full-timing, they're performing as well as day 1.

I have 4 Trojan T105's installed in 2009, still get specific gravity reading of 1230/1240. Have rarely been deep cycled, I think the solar panels and a battery maintainer is what saves them. Every year for the last couple I have been anticipating a need to replace them. Have never removed them during storage, even up hear in cold Alberta, just used a battery maintainer. I use a Magnum Energy inverter/charger which is an excellent battery maintainer, expensive but worth it. Batteries this year are just starting to drop below 12 volt when using the Keurig coffee maker, but bounce right back
