Hey guys !

The battery in my trailer is dead. Am an in Indiana and the exide battery went up to 75 dollars after the weekend. I talked to the manager and grabbed one at 68 dollars. is this not a real marine/RV battery ? Should I return it ? Meijers has Pro-cell (their brand) 185 minutes@25 amps for 95 dollars. I could grab the Menards one if it is not going to last me a night of some lights and furnace use.

Thanks for your quick advice

I don't think they are. I bought two of them and they were at 12.4 when I got home been on charger for 3 weeks. And a 1.5 million candle light power spot light will drain them from 13.6 to 12.2 in five mins. I don't think that is good. My heater in camper pulls more power then that spot Light.

It could be I got two bad batteries. Or they are not that good. First time I tried that brand. And I'm not sure if I can that them back, having them for 3 weeks now. I'm starting to think about just going two 6 volt and see what happens there. 90% of camping for me is in the middle of nowhere.

I got it today and did not install it at all. I am pretty sure they will take it back tomorrow, hopefully. Small chance of both of them being bad right ? .... You get what you pay for ... Darn, I am sad now ...
