Re: House Batteries

One place I found real helpful with batteries is Crown Battery Co. If you have one near you go talk to them they are very helpful at my local store and I got 6v 395aph batteries for 255.00 each.

That is the same part number as the batteries I got. The guy at the Batteries Plus I went to was very helpful and knowledgeable. I just told him my application (RV house batteries) and asked a few questions about different options, and the SLIGC110 was the option we agreed was best for my situation. I asked if there was any advantage of 6v golf cart vs 12v marine batteries and he said the 6v tend to be bigger and have more capacity (longer run time between charges). I asked about the Trojan brand golf cart batteries and he said some people swear by them but they cost a lot more than the ones I got and only have 4% more capacity, but are otherwise the same quality. So anyway, I felt like he gave me good advice and understood my application.

You're guy must have been a newbie or something...

Re: House Batteries

i would go to a battery distributor store where they have a large volume of sales to stores, truckers, and the like over going to batteries plus. In my town, these guys know 10 times as much as the batteries plus kids that are here... just saying.
