I’m with BB. Got 12 of them. Still early but they store way more power than the gels and are really hard to kill. And the warranty.

Just to throw another option Into the mix. Last spring I installed new batteries in my LXI. Went with Rolls lead acid made in Canada. Purchased 6ea. L16 2volt cells for a total of $2,000 delivered. Replaced the original 6 ea. 12volt Lifeline.

Spent 3 months mostly dry camping last summer in Canada and Alaska. So far they are proving to be an excellent choice. Have added water twice in 9 months and only have 6 cells to check (almost as easy as AGM). No concern with even charging and very simple wiring. Just another option to consider.

Thanks for the info Mike....and others. I wasn't even considering them at 800 bucks a piece..... but at $100, I would have gave them a shot. But I see now, they are a good choice for our application. My lifelines must be well over 8 years and other than the price they are probably my best choice..But I'm interested Rolls Jim. I went to their web site and I see L16 that 2v? You rewired the whole house battery setup?

Pictures showing buss bars between cells, disconnect on negative side, fuse on lead to chassis battery solenoid. Plenty of space to work and check water. So far, has worked well for me. Click image for larger version
