Golf Cart batteries

I'm not sure where this belongs. It's been ages since I was on here. We tow a closed trailer for our EZ-Go golf cart, or we did until our cart batteries seem to have died. I am wondering what besides Trojan T-105 batteries do you use in a 36V system. Sams Club sells Duracell GC-2 for $119 to 129 to 139, depending on the level of quality. We are retired with two special needs boys, so we RV on a shoestring and are looking for a bargain in cart batteries that will last a few years. We camp for 3 weeks a couple times a year and run around the neighborhood 2-3 times a month in the cart, so the use is not extreme. We have a few years ahead of us and would like to give the boys as much adventure as we can in that time. The boys (and the dog) LOVE riding in the cart, and we would appreciate any ideas that might be out there.

If FLA Sam's Club Duracell GCs are <$100 last I looked.
IMO they are a "Best Buy" and hard to beat $/AH.
Life will depend on how well you care for them but thats the same if you spend 50% - 100% more for top shelf brands.
Keep them watered, charged and they should fit your needs very well,

I worked for many years as a Mobil mechanic in a factory. One of my responsibilities was maintaining a fleet or golf carts and small 48 volt maintenance carts. the key to battery life is maintaining the batteries. Charge after each use, keep the batteries topped off with distilled water, keep the connections clean add tight. An anti corrosion spray applied to the battery posts is a good idea. Invest in a hydrometer to test the specific gravity. Take care of your batteries and you will get a long life out of them.
