They were good price, shopped around for the batteries, RV dealer was highest ($184) auto parts second highest ($138) But Costco ($86) was best for same brand and model for the 6 volt golf cart batteries. Yes they are very heavy and big. they were Interstate brand batteries.

Here is a picture of my battery. Mine are not golf cart batteries. Much bigger I'm not sure what is in anyone else's coach. But the batteries in mine are nothing like what in my golf cart.

My golf cart has like heavy truck batteries. But my Berkshire has 15" tall batteries

The heavier the battery the better quality it is. Lead makes power and weight. I guess we need to weigh everything.

I'll show you the top of the battery. What I'm saying is the ones in my 2014 coach are much bigger that golf cart batteries. I'd say 2.5 times as heavy. My golf cart have flat tires hauling 4 of these around !! Click image for larger version

420 AH. Nice. I think the regular golf cart batteries are about 220-240 AH.

I also have the four six volt regular sized batteries in my battery compartment. I'm changing out the controller and the one bad battery tomorrow and we'll see if that does the trick. I'll keep you all posted.
