Replacing RV Batteries

Recommended Posts

The pair of original factory installed US Battery US2000C 6 volt batteries in our 2007 Triple E TOPAZ 5th wheel finally need replacing.  That's right, 11 years of reliable service from one set of 2, 6-volt batteries.  I am considering US Battery, Interstate, Trojan, or Duracell products as the replacement and I am looking for advice.  Considering specifications being relatively equal among the brands, what experience have people had with one brand versus another?  I am very diligent with battery maintenance and look forward to your feedback.  Thanks in advance.

My preference, and it is only a preference, Trojan at the top of the list, and Duracell at the bottom. But if you got 11 years out of the US Battery, I would opt for that one, kindly tells its own story.

We're using Trojan. Used them in our last coach as well. So far so good. They also have a great watering system that fits their batteries and works well. They have a number of options available in each battery size, and it may even be possible to get a larger capacity battery in the same physical footprint.

valvis, Welcome to the Forum.

If I got 11 years from a set of batteries I would go with the same brand again. Sounds like they are a good make.

As the ole saying goes, "Dance with the one that brought you". In this case US Battery.

The best battery on the market today is CROWN with Trojan a hot second. They have several to choose from space dependent. I am using the CROWn 260, a 260 amp hour unit and expect ten years. That said the second coach I have, a 2001 Safari Zanzibar has the original chassis batteries still in it and hold up just fine under a comprehensive load test. That said they are Interstates "Workhorse" and are no longer made...wonder why....
