These are the batteries I bought, but note that the desciption says M10 stud but they are actually 3/8", which is needed for the Freightliner connector.

New Chassis Batteries - Time to Replace

I replaced all six batteries a year ago last Aug (2020). I had bought that full set in 2012 when we bought the coachÖ. all Interstate, a pair of Gp31 AGM for the chassis and four flooded 6v GC for the house. They served me well for 8 years without so much as a burp (just added water). They werenít giving me any problem, I just replaced them at 8 years out of prudence, so I replaced with the same, but upgraded the GC house batts to AGM as well.
I bought them at a small indy tire shop in Granger, Texas, where I bought six new coach tires the same day, and that I had dealt with before for toad tires. I canít recall what the price breakdown was, and itís 2 AM and Iím lying in bed, so Iím not going to go check, either.

I second the above, Freightliner has a very good price for chassis batteries.
