Go get some Trojan 6v batts. They will outlast the rest and won't leave you in the dark. I only run 2 in series and they provide more than enough power for my stereo, lights, heater, etc. for a 3 day weekend throughout winter. Without touching the heater I have never have them hiccup yet. You do need to monitor the acid level though and keep them on a tender charger when not in use for the longest life. Batteries die out quick when left in the heat of RV storage.

I used to run the trojan t105 and had pretty good luck with them. I just bought 4 crown 6 volt 225 ah. from batteries plus . I think costco sells 6 volts now to and the only reason I would buy from cosco would be that when they die a few years down the road they will take them back no questions asked full replacement no prorate...
I run a product called thermoil in the batteries and they dont lose the acid. I think they have a website or google them.
If you leave your trailer plugged in at home make sure you have a 3 stage charger system if not you will boil your batteries.. most toy haulers have the charger but you have to buy the plug in module that has the phone jack plug in to make it three stage.

Phone jack? how does that work? does it call you to see how your day is going?

Don't go with anything other than Trojan. Trust me. I learned this from my electric golf cart days.

$136.00 seems just a little high. You might be able to find them down around $115. But how much time do you want to spend doing that?
