Just purchased 6 Napa 6 Volt 230 Ah batteries 8144 . they were $149. but if you order online and use a AAA card they are discounted 20 % then pickup at the store of your choice . They are made by East Penn. Wanted Interstate but they wouldn't budge off the $163. msrp.

I bought 8 Duracell GC2 AGM batteries at Sam's almost 3 yrs ago to replace my flooded batteries. Have had great service from them. Duracell are East Penn batteries rebadged.

Batteries Plus also has the 6V GC Batteries. They are labeled Duracell and have a couple different sizes which relates to Amp Hours.

I bought 2 a couple weeks back and seem to be great.

I think Costco and Sams are both Interstate. The bad reviews are on the Costco website that I have seen. I decided to go with Batteries plus due to the bad reviews. I also looked at an RV parts department that sold Interstate but wanted almost double the Costco price, he said they were completely different batteries. Not sure if that is true.

I have a 2001 National Tradewinds and have been using GC 2 Duracell batteries for years. My current ones are 4 years old and I'm thinking of replacing them. When I pulled them up on line at Sam's club The ratings were like 2. What 6 volt batteries are you all using, I need 4. There is no Sam's Club in Saint George Utah.
Are they losing capacity is that why you want replacements? Try equalizing first if you haven't already it may bring back the lost capacity. Also try desulfating if your charger has that function. You should be able to get more that 4 years out of those batteries.

East Penn sells batteries under several different brand names including Deka.

Interstate and Deka both make GC-2's as well. Alas mine are about to go bad but for other reasons. (Scrapping RV, hit and run driver totaled it so once I get to SC for the winter I hand it over to the insurance company and move out of the RV life...... Been thinking about that for a while.. Hoped for a few more years. but.. Now's the time it seems.


Hi wa8yxm,

How awful for you. Are you ok from the hit and run?

It is good you have an exit strategy in place.


I was not hurt.. I was just getting into bed when a Truck clipped the bed room slide out. Damage to the Slide only. none to me.

The bad news is I hoped to have a few more years.

But the good news is I've been thinking about selling it and parking my bod for a while.. Just the final motivation

The other good news
The insuance will pay off the bank and it appears hand me a good size pile of let over change.


Home is where I park it.

I bought them 1.5 years ago. I bought them in Gainesville Fl. at Batteries Plus they brought them 18 miles to me, installed them and took the old batteries away. The bring to and haul away cost me $50.00
sorry for the delay in responding.

When I go to the Batteries Plus website, I see three different Duracell 6-volt GC2 batteries, for $119.99 (215 AH), $129.99 (230 AH), and $149.99 (235 AH). (It thinks I'm in Denver, in case that matters on pricing.)

I paid about $100 each for six Duracell 230 AH batteries from Batteries Plus in Phoenix 2-1/2 years ago. I ordered them over the internet and got a 10% discount for doing so, and picked them up in person. Those batteries would be $117 if I bought them today.
