I like NAPA batteries...service almost anywhere should you have a problem.

No one has mentioned safety glasses...I don't even check the water without them, getting old I guess.

Hi dirko:

These are two ENGINE STARTING BATTERIES. I also have three house batteries that are fine at the moment.

That is why the concern of the CCA's..

Regards... Jim P.

HI Guys:

Well I bought two Duralast batteries 31 -950 CCA's at Auto Zone for $99.00 a piece, + $12.00 refundable core charge. Not a bad price at all. They had the screw on terminals like I needed and fit great.

It only took about 20 minutes to change them out. I left my Solar Charger hooked up for now. I started the coach and generator up and ran for a while.

Ol Betsy is ready to rock and roll.

Regards... Jim P.

SAFETY GOGGLES not glasses, you're not worried about projectiles on this one, it's the acid that will blind you. Goggles will keep your eyes protected from all directions

I don't know why you are concerned about CCA. If the batteries are for the coach amp hours are much more important. The best deals I have found are golf cart batteries. Anyway, the important thing is durability with charge cycles, especially deep discharge.

If the batteries are to start the engine, then CCA is important.

CCA / Cold Cranking Amps. For cranking your engine.
