My TT needs a new battery. I am not normally boon docking it, yet, so I only need a battery for the typical load of it sitting unplugged from shore power. So, which Costco battery should I get?

Do not suggest other places as I am in Canada, and don't have Autozones, Pepboys, etc...


Nickel Belt Camping is an RV Care dealer in your area that sells Traveler's Choice branded deep cycle batteries, both flooded and AGM, that are in fact DEKA batteries manufactured by East Penn, the largest battery manufacturer in the US. If you have any subsequent issues with the battery you can drop by any one of the 60+ RV Care dealers across Canada for warranty coverage which IIRC is 2 yrs.

Do not suggest the 2 6 volt set up as that is not my need.


Costco Canada sells decent Group 24 and 27 batteries but they are seasonal items. Like that means you have to get in NOW to see if they have any available. I picked up 2 6VDC a month ago in Burlington but they do go fast.

Other than that as suggested any decent 12VDC would do. I picked up 2 850 CC units for the truck this spring for about $110 each plus $10 core charge and HST.

What series battery do you presently have, if it has served you well the same should work in the future.


I don't know. It is a marine starting battery from somewhere else.


Change that to a Marine/RV instead of a Starting in case you lose power and have to cycle it a few times.

We went through the process of buying 2 new house batteries recently. We checked Costco - absolutely no one to help with any questions there. Decided to check with Canadian Tire - got real HELP, questions answered and prices comparable to Costco.
Those batteries are too heavy to be hauling around to compare. We found even with taking a picture of the label and trying to find similar at Costco was nothing more than frustrating.
Canadian Tire even took batteries to our car - won't get that service at Costco.

I wouldn't take a Cdn Tire battery if you gave it to me for free. Everyone I have had has been garbage and they fight you on the warranty.

Costco could care less for your reason's for returning them and have a better pro rated battery warranty.

Remember Costco does not have dedicated "experts"(like the 18 YO kid in auto parts is, yea right) in any of their departments like Cdn Tire. You do your own research and if you're not happy, they'll take it back. BTW you could have asked for a carry out and they would have helped.

Costco by us has a group 27 marine deep cycle battery that should serve you just fine.
Why would you not just pick one or two up and go have some fun.

Simple answer: Take your old battery to COSCO for an exact change.


Isn't that a container Company?
