Hi All,

Battery prices from Sam's Club

G29 125 AH $79.42
G27 115AH $68.87
Golf Cart 6V 220AH $71.28

Based on dual batteries this equates to:

G 29....@....250 amp/hr = $0.63 per amp hour
G 27....@....230 amp/hr = $0.60 per amp hour
Golf Cart @ 220 amp/hr = $0.65 per amp hour

Before anyone does the "old saw" that six volt batteries last longer I'll point out that my last set of 12 volt batteries are six years old and still going strong. The "secret"? A 30 watt solar system with an old style charge controller.

I'll also point out that the dual G 29 set has 12% more amp hour capacity than the "twin" six volt set.

Don

Back some thirteen years ago I had a 74 winnebago using two 12volt batteries, I always bought from National Battery and asked for the best batteries they had for my purpose. Changed batteries average every 3 to 4 years. Sold motor home some 5 years ago. New owner changed to 6 volt. He is still running strong on those batteries. When I bought my new motor home it came with 6 volt and I wondered about that but was told by many people they are far better for motor homes and they run 250 dollars each.
Friend has a fifth wheel and changed his batteries also every 3 to 4 years. Last time he switched to 6 volt. Has been two years so far and he is happy. He too was told they are better for rv's.
