We are ready to head to Montana next week, from Alberta and today I found out that my battery is pretty much toast,

Deep cycle batteries run about at about $175- $190 dollars here in Canada.
Just curious what the cost is on the in the US? It might be cheaper for me to get one at Costco or any other place.

When I do a Google search nothing comes up because I’m in Canada.

well thats a load of BS. only no good if you camp in the winter and insist on leaving them on the tounge.


Charge an LiFePo4 at -40. Not recommended you say?

To run what I want I'd need 700 lbs of battery. Think I want to move that into the RV when it is -30?


How do you guys turn someone’s simple question about the price of a deep cycle battery into your stupid p!swing match??


LOL, I was wondering the same. The OP is in Baltimore MD but I guess he could tow his trailer to Antartica.

Well if this thread was over on the dedicated Keystone forum the 3 overbearing members there would have turned it into a payload issue.:h
Just say no to the payload police :C

One nice thing about Costco vs WalMart is the lack of an eighteen year old pimple face expert sales "associate" armed with a cheese grater 100 amp load tester who is convinced despite your battery's dead cell his fifty dollar cheese grater load tester says the battery is fine. (Same with Wal Mart tires).
Even Wal Mart microwave ovens synchronize platter index return to 30 second intervals. A PITA for coffee mug handle orientation. A Walmart toaster pops toast one inch below the slot. It's really a hoot the Chinese junk they hawk.

And beware newest Wal Mart car batteries. If the case looks different avoid it. They are buying from someone else than Mexico LTH battery and that vendor is so bad the Mexicans sneer at it.

“ by now we all know for what you do and the fact you won't mount them in a conditioned space means there no good for you, that by no means is a short coming of the battery but rather your own unwillingness to do an alternative set up, which is fine, but quite trying to convince yourself and others that SI)2 is better. it isnt plain and simple except for one situation. ”

After such a lengthy post trail (over a time…) of what’s been repeatedly flushed out as ‘bogie issue’ silliness, my sense is that it has zero to do with cold weather, LFP’s OR of RV adaptability, and more of a ‘head-fake’ to gain sorely needed marketing exposure for SiO2’s…We’ve all been forced to suffer this nonsense, JMHO…

Before spending a lot of money on fancy batteries, what are you using them for?

If you were otherwise happy with the old battery, there is no reason to move up to higher end batteries.

This would be common if you typically stay in campgrounds with electricity. Enough power to run the jacks, slideout, maybe a bit of water pump if you stop for lunch...you simply don't need the cost or weight of a big battery bank.

First off, you’d need half that weight and half that footprint with LFP, and if you moved them inside (or simply provide heat into a compartment) ‘Presto’ it suddenly becomes a ‘Bogie issue’….How is this minor effort deemed to be insurmountable??…AND SiO2’s ain’t cheap, eh?….Fewer LPF’s are required for the same ‘usable’ SiO2 amp/hrs, meaning you’ll likely save some hard earned moola…

Waaay too much ‘hand wringing’ going on here…JMO

Not a bad price for quality batteries, should last a few years. IMHO $125 to $150 is a decent battery don't want to be stuck with bad batteries. Definitely get at least group 27 for motorhome.
