I don't try to get the most of my battery. I feel after 3-4 years it is just a matter of time time that any battery will fail. So I go with a good cheaper battery I replace every 3 years. I buy the exide deep cycle for 70 bucks at menards. I have been doing this for years. I have never been camping and my battery failed.

Does anyone know how Interstate batteries (6V) compare to Trojan 105s? Costco has 6V golf cart batteries (interstate) on sale for $83. I've seen the 105s for $110 occasionally. Just trying to decide whether to go with 4 x 6V or 2 x12V G27 batteries. I will probably be 75% dry camp vs. 25% hookups.

While 6 vdc batts last longer, they can be difficult to find if one goes bad. You are now down to one 6 vdc batt and that does nothing for you. If you have a dual system of 6 vdc (4 batts series/parallel connected) you will be OK. You can delete one bank of series 6 vdc and get along. For me, 2 x 12 vdc is easier and you can find 12 vdc almost anywhere. Just my opinion.
