Battery Manufacturer

Is there some way to find out what kind (brand) of house batteries are in my coach? I have a 2013 3011DS Forester with two 12v batteries. There is no vender/manufacturer info on either of them.

I had the same problem with my 2013 3011DS Forester. Both coach batteries have no identifying information on them. Both of the factory batteries went bad a month ago. I replaced them with Costco's deep cycle Interstate RV/Marine batteries. The factory batteries are NOT the highest quality and that is probably why we don't get to know who made them.

They are Exide. Batteries are decent...the key is proper maintenance which I'm guessing they rarely get on a dealers lot.
