Lifeline battery for 2016 classic

What model of lifeline battery do I need to replace the current current batteries in my 2016 Classic?
What 3 stage converter/ charger should I purchase that will fit and plug into existing system?

Why do you feel that you need Lifelines?
There are other choices out there such as Trojan or Crown. Just wondering why Lifelines?

Thumbs up

Did the upgrade in 2007, SFSG.

Two Grp 27 100ah Lifelines and IOTA 55a DLS converter.

Lifelines made in USA to Mil/Spec....
IMO...well worth the investment.

Note.....strap added to lift battery over the sill on the Classic's battery compartment.....

From the research I have done. Lifeline batteries are top notch. I am sure others are good too.

I upgraded my charger/ converter to the four stage charger. I have to save up for the lifeline batteries. The 2016 classic has a battery box that maybe large enough for two 6 volts in series. I will have to do some research on that. It would be great if they will fit without any problems or modifications

The newer Airstreams can accommodate a pair of Lifeline GPL-4CT golf cart batteries with no modifications. They are 6VDC @ 220 amp/hours. The new battery boxes are a bit taller than the older models.
