Smile Replacement Chassis Batteries for 2017 Dutch Star

My batteries are nearing the end of their life. Any recommendations for 6 volt replacement would be appreciated.

Lifeline are very good but somewhat pricey. Since I don’t do a lot of boondocking I went with Duracell agm batteries from Sam’s Club. About $175 each and I couldn’t be happier with them. I was glad to get rid of the Interstate flooded lead acid batteries that were eating up my battery cables and battery compartment.

Your thread title mentions Chassis Batteries - your Chassis batteries should be 12V, not 6V. Your House bank should be 6V.
I replaced my House bank with Trojan - great batteries. Your Chassis batteries are usually series 31 and can be bought anywhere. I went with the Discount Auto brand.

I'm curious , what is the problem with the chassis(?) batteries that make you think are nearing the end of their life? Just age?

When I replaced my chassis batteries a couple years ago, I shopped around and found the best deal to be at the local Freightliner shop. exact match for what was originally in there.
When I replaced my house batteries , I went with Duracell AGM batteries from Sams Club

Your batteries are only four years old. What makes you think they need to be replaced?
