Battery Replacing

Hello, this is my first time posting. We have a 2015 Forest River Sierra SEF33ORLS 39' 5th Wheel and are fulltimers. Our batteries are not holding a charge and just looking for recommendations on what we should replace them with. Existing are 2 Interstate Extreme Cycle 6 Volt! Thanks for any advice you can offer.

Why not use the same batteries? Interstate sells a good battery.

When I looked up the number of the existing one it was listed under golf cart batteries? Thought maybe 12V might be better? Just looking for someone else's views.

Are you fulltiming at parks with hookups or occasionally without power?

A little research will show that 2 6 volt batteries are better than 2 12 volt batteries. Will be going to two or four 6's on mine soon. Far as brand...Ford - Chevy - Dodge - or ???, lots of opinions out there.

X2. And you can find Interstate batteries everywhere, even tiny podunk towns. Interstate is all we use, although for our RV we use two 12v SRM 27 Marine/RV deep cycle. But if you already have 6v, might as well stick with it. https://www.interstatebatteries.com/...ies/deep-cycle
