I thought that those little tabs that are missing is when it was sold. That looks like JL of 04
Did you mean when it was manufactured?
I think the warrenty date goes from when it was sold, right?

Warranty goes from date sold, but when you go to the grocery store, you look for the gallon of milk with the freshest date on it. If the person selling it forgets to punch out the selling date, warranty goes back to date of manufacture. (8-03)

I just put an Optima blue top in my 24' Argosy last night. They are pricey but the $75.00 battery didn't last and I wanted a battery that I didn't have to worry about checking water level.
I am hooked up to shore power most of the time, so put my charge wizard on storage mode to start with. Will let you know if it's worth the extra money!
They do have to be vented!! The yellow top have a tube that a hose can be hooked too, but they are too big for my battery box so I went with the blue top. The blue tops have holes that have a hard material in them that let it vent. So the part about laying them on there side's is wrong.

Their web site says they can be upside down or on their side.
