- 6V Golf Cart Batteries for my Motorhome Review by Danny Mich. from Raleigh NC
Price Value Quality
I wanted better performance from my batteries when I dry-camped. The stock 12V batteries that came with my class 31c wasn't performing to my satisfaction. I could not go a whole night without having to rely on the generator which didn't make my neighbors happy. After talking with with someone at Camping World and researching online, I took the advice of going with 6V golf cart batteries. A lot of people recommended the Trojan T105 batteries. However, my batteries are situated in a spot where there was limited vertical clearance. So checking the battery fluid and watering these T105 batteries would have been very difficult. So I settled on maintenance free AGM Amstron AP-GC2. These batteries have been performing flawlessly for the last year and half. The run time compared to my 2 12 Volts is probably 3 times. The batteries still give me same run time compared to last year. Another thing that I really like about this battery is really slow voltage drop during storage. I log my voltage everytime I get my RV for a trip. One time after 2 months of storage, the voltage went from 12.8 to 12.72 in between no usage. Which is incredible compared to my starting battery which had a delta of .43 voltage. I would definitely a fan of these Amstron GC2 batteries.
