Hey! Sears has deep cycle up to 60% off

Shop for Marine Batteries in the Automotive department of Sears.com Marine Batteries ,Sears

These aren't glass matt, but hey, if you still have a vented battery box, or need to drop one back there so the emegency disconnect works (most states require you to have a working battery for emergency brakes) this is a good option.

I noticed the same thing.

But, it's a good news bad news kind of thing. Good News: The Platinum ones are are AGMs. I have a couple of them in my Excella. Bad News: Not available, you can't have any. No soup for you!

Since it appears to be all the batteries, perhaps it is a website problem they will correct. Sears has a history of website problems.

Now it appears that the whole page has gone away. Following the link got me "Yikes! We're sorry, but that page is no longer available."

I found the batteries with a search, and they're still unavailable.

Doesn't surprise me at all. Like I said, their website people don't have a clue.

Sears used to have good batteries, I'd not buy one for any of my rigs from all the horror stories I've heard about them. Ditto for Interstate.

I'm sure there are many good batteries out there, but the Interstates I had lasted about three years. The story was "well, you're full timing and that wears batteries out faster." My tire guy suggested AC/DELCO "Voyager" batteries, and I've been overjoyed with them!
