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.

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.
