Which Batteries

I need 3 new batts for my georgetown. I need a motor batt and two for the coach. Should I buy some oddesy extreme?
or should I use 6v for the coach? It has 2 12v now.

money is not a deciding factor. What should I buy?

thanks for the reply. I have done lots of research for the optimas for my jeep and many other vehicles. The odysey batteries are way better with much less returns from malfunction. They are only $20-$30 more than the optimas.

Im just not sure if there is a better battery for the coach or if there is a point to change to the 6v

I use the Optima in my off road Jeep, but have the 6 volt 300 amp Lifeline batteries for the coach. Six of them gives me 900 amps of capacity. They are pricey, but the best I have ever had.

Two 6 volt Lifelines would give you 300 amps @ 12 volts for the house and they are a true deep cycle battery. They are under $300 each if bought direct from the factory.

That will get you 450 amps for $1079. The Lifelines have the same footprint of a standard deep cycle battery and four would get you 600 amps for $1200. More amps for the dollar.

They are 13" tall so you will need almost twice the height, in the battery compartment, as a standard battery.

No, this one.

https://www.batterystuff.com/batteri...s/gpl-6ct.html

I paid $256 each 2 1/2 years ago. I priced them last Oct for a friend and was quoted $287 each. I was given dealer pricing when I bought mine. They might not do it again. They are 3" taller than a standard battery. The fit fine in my stock tray.
