Battery Recommendations?

There is lots of discussions about batteries from regular 24 to golf cart 6v to lithium. Here is my experience in the hope that it helps others make the choice that is right for them.

We have been running ONE Walmart 24 ms that cost $55 w/o tax for the last 8 months. We have had over 10 campground stops, 4 that were dry camping. The battery is still fully charged and ready to go.

Note: when dry camping, we run on the generator and shut most things down during quiet hours. We donít watch TV with the battery, for example. Of course everyone uses power differently while camping.

For us, the bottom line is that a $55 battery works fine.

TV - 2002 GMC Yukon XL 2500, 8.1 liter (496ci), 4L85e & positraction with 3.73 gears
TT - 2013 Dutchmen Aspen Trail 3130 QBS
Drinks of choice: woodford reserve, knob creek & any great bourbon-just about any of San Diegoís craft beer and Pabst Blue Ribbon

It works well for you. That is what counts most.
