Battery Recommendations Please

I have a FR 2010, Lexington that I purchased last year and we really like the unit.
I'm new to this but would like to hear your advice on the coach Battery's. The [2] batteries I have now are Exide's and purchased and installed in Sept. "13" as a set from there stickers on the batteries.
How long do the coach batteries average in life? Do you see a better life or results with certain manufactures?
I cannot hold a charge even after I have taken them out and charge them on my charger. My digital meter reads 12.6 at best when removed from charger. The shore power has no problems just can't run by battery and was wondering if 2 years is good for coach batteries?

Battery maintenance is a topic with no shortage of opinions. I would do a search and you will get what you need. I had exides in my new coach. Didn't last 1 season but only because I didn't know what I was doing. A wet cell battery can't be discharged past 50% or the battery life shortens. I installed lifeline agm batteries and a trimetric monitoring system. Wasn't cheap but now have the top of the line and can monitor batteries with a lot of info not just 4 lights.
