Any bargains in Quartzsite or Phoenix?

I'm planning to leave the Houston, TX area in a few weeks and head to AZ where I'll be boondocking for several weeks. I have a solar system, but have put off upgrading to golf cart batteries. I now have 2 deep cycle 12 volts that in the past has gotten me thru even cold nights without discharging below 70%, but don't think we could make it thru multiple cloudy days.

Will I save $ buying batteries in Quartzsite or at the Good Sam Rally in Phoenix?

I just replace 4 6V deep cycles at Solar Bills in Quartzite. I think they are very price competitive. You can find them on the Internet and call for price comparisions. They go through a lot of batteries so they should be fresh.

I have read that Solar Bills has a bad rep., try the Good Sam Rally in Phoenix, or Costco in Phoenix.
