You like those Interstate batteries,don't you?

Heard both pros and cons about them - mostly pros.

Are they made by another manufacturer or do they also make them for other brands?

Last pair in the sabre were 5 years old and still kickin!
They suit my needs in every situation we've been in for dry camping so I continue to use them @ $80.00 each.

To my knowledge they make there own.

Well one down, I guess your PDI went well and you got her home now? Same thing I did used a tee to tie my battery boxs together to one vent. Going on 4 years with my interstate. Just unplugged last week after the surface charge left checked in 48 hrs. read 12.7, only thing I had to install across the bay to equal the weight left and right. Once again Congrads on the new unit, will give you something to do all winter......

I believe those Interstates, like so many others, are made by Johnson Controls.

Well how did you like that level-up system? Us old men need that. I just love ours, I would never own another trailer without it installed. With yours being electric you can even still use the JT's. Don't really think you will need them through. Do you have the elec. stabilizer on the rear also?

Level up system is nice!
About 1 1/2 minutes to level.
No rear stabilizers but still need jt's.
