What deep cycle batteries are best? I have been searching the 'net & it seems that Trojan & US Battery make some pretty good ones. What have you experienced RV'ers found to work best?

Interstate Deep cycle batteries. They are used in many marine applications.

I ended up with Exide. I have no idea who makes a better battery, but I'm most familiar with Interstate and they always have a good showing at the RV shows.

IMHO,Trojan Batteries are the best - especially for pairing 6V golf cart batteries. Much higher capacity and great for a solar powered system.

My RL came with two Interstate Group 27s. Don't see how anything larger would fit.

I looked at 29s, but they measured out too big.

The new 38's may have a larger battery area than the 36's. Remember......the 38's had been created with having the "Carriage" names on 'em. Too bad......really. They showed up in Mid September when the Carriages were to suppose to be introduced.

Dave, check this special edition Redwood down in the Features/Options section right column - it says "Limited/Carriage Edition"
