Quality Motorhome Batteries Are Necessary To Enjoy Your Over The Road Travels


There are two different kinds of motorhome batteries:  the chassis and the coach batteries.  Chassis batteries are like a car batteries; they power the engine and necessary mechanics for the RV to go.  Coach batteries, on the other hand, are necessary to power the lights and appliances inside the living area.  Of course, it is necessary that both of these batteries be in excellent repair, but if a replacement is necessary, there are several suppliers to which you can turn.

The Chevrolet P-Series Motorhome Battery fits a wide variety of RV’s with model years from 1989 to 1998.  If you drive a Winnebago, Prevost, or Fleetwood, for example from this span of time, this might be the right battery for you.  It is a chassis battery with a reserve capacity of 135 minutes and a typical service life of six to eight years.  It is for sale at powerstridebattery.com where it is product number 78-PC1500, and it sells for $292.50.

At amazon.com, a popular outlet for a variety of products at or near wholesale prices, you will find the Exide Orbital ORB34DC-36 Sealed VRLA (AGM) Deep-Cycle Marine/RV Battery.  Made for large boats and motorhomes, this battery features 100 minutes of reserve capacity and absorbent glass mat separators to decrease vibration noises.  The valves are sealed to prevent leaking for safer travels.  While Class A, Class B, and Class C motorhomes sometimes have differing needs, you can check your owner’s manual to see if this quality item would be a suitable fit for you vehicle.  It is available for $229.99.

If you are driving a Holiday Rambler, Monaco, or other brand of motorhome, or if you are pulling a travel trailer, you will need a deep cycle battery to power your lights and appliances inside the coach.  The 12-Volt Deep Cycle AGM RV Battery, sold at wholesale batteriesdirect.com, is built to be safe and effective.  It is an exact replacement for the Lifeline Battery and can be used in its place, but sells for a lower price.  At this site, you will not find RV accessories, but you will find batteries for modern RV’s at wholesale prices.  This battery sells for $529.95.

Another excellent resource for RV and marine supplies is batteriesinaflash.com.  Here you will find the Centennial BCI Group 31 Sealed 12-Volt RV Marine Battery, product number 700CCA.  Deep cycling batteries like this one are the best option for camping and boating needs; these contemporary products can withstand repeated depletion of power and recharging.  You can purchase this battery for $129.95.

Several retailers sell the Diehard Marine/RV Battery with Exchange.  At sears.com, it is priced at $114.99.  This aftermarket battery has a reserve capacity of 180 minutes, features 675 cranking amps.  It is a great universal battery from a reputable manufacturer.  It will fit most motorhome needs, whether you are equipping  an Airstream, Itasca, or another popular RV brand.
