Which Batteries

I am fairly new to this RV game. I am having problems with the coach batteries not hold a charge. Had no problems unit it was left at a RV dealer for 7 weeks. I think they may have left something on and drained batteries to the point they won't recharge. Which are the coach batteries and which are the house batteries. One tray has 4 6V batteries and the other has 2 12V batteries. According to the batteries they were installed 11/16. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The 4 6V batteries are your house batteries. The 2 12V are your chassis batteries.

Any recommendations for replacement batteries for the chassis batteries.

For the chassis batteries: there's nothing wrong with a pair of Interstates...

I would go with a brand name AGM on all of them if it was me.

AGM's will cost more but IMO they are worth it. Zero mantainance, longer life, quicker charging etc. They are superior to LA in every way but price.

I like my Full River brand.

Go with what is on sale or ask for a discount when you purchase them. I asked for a discount at Battery Depot and they knocked off 10%!

There are several good sealed flooded batteries as well for the chassis



House definitely AGM or better
