'60 PD4104-4355(sold) Now Freightliner Conversion

« on: August 21, 2013, 08:18:21 AM »

I just replaced my coach (house) batteries.  I had three Trojan 31XHS with 130 AH rating at 20 Hours each for a total of 390 amp hours.

The new batteries are Trojan 30XHS with the same exact same rating.

The old batteries were 7 years and 9 months old and cost $100.00 each +tax.
The new batteries cost $150.00 each +tax; a 50 % increase in ~8 years.

The old batteries cost me $3.22/month, not too bad.  In that time period, probably about 600 to 700 camping days mostly off the grid.
