Need new batteries

Hi experts...
I just found out my two batteries are dead and need to be replaced.
(08 27FB). One battery...bone dry and on the other the two "lids" were popped off!
What's the best replacement battery and where's the best place to buy them?
I need them ASAP.
Thanks for the help.
Dennis

Sears usually has decent prices on batteries.

Need in a hurry.....

......I would go to your local Interstate supplier. Marine/RV Deep cycle.

If maintained properly they are a good choice.
If you have the OEM Parallax 7400 series Converter I would be extra careful charging when stored. Best to put it on a timer for an hour per day to prevent overcharging/running dry while storing for extended periods.

I'm partial to Interstate batteries myself, ever since I had a supposed five-year Interstate battery last well over seven years in one of my cars. I only mentioned Sears due to the ASAP in the original post, and the fact that they carry both wet-cell and AGM.

I just bought two new Deep cycle Marine batteries at COSTCO. About $140 for the pair.

And the Kirkland Group 24 deep-cycles are made by Interstate, according to Costco at least.

Just installed (today) two Lifeline AGM's in my 2012....$295 each. Yes, very expensive, but 5 year warrantee ... though it obviously is pro-rated. My OEM Interstates were OK, but I installed 400W of solar panels and figured I'd just do the whole thing. I do NOT want to deal with battery issues as I go through my summer/fall travels.

Yep, AGM are the best for several reasons. I own a bait shop in Minn, and have interstate brand here, they most likely are the best maintenance free type on the market, of course deep cycle. And besides, I pay only wholesale
