Time for New Batteries

Why do you need to replace your batteries on a 2015? That doesn't seem right.

Interstate batteries that J.C. are using on the new trailers have a useful life (in most instances) of less than two years.

Sad but true.

I'm happy for you.

Perhaps you'll get seven more if you're lucky.

I went with Group 27 Interstate batteries from Costco. Good price ($80/each). Wanted to go with Lifeline AGM but for the cost, I can replace the Interstate batteries a couple more times... I'm planning on watching the water level to make sure I don't run a cell low. Typically I have good luck with Interstate batteries but these do only carry a 1 year manufacturer warranty.

I just got a pair of these from Batteries and Bulbs, with 10% off for order online and pickup local. They are the exact same battery as the West Marine set that was in service for ~7 years.
