Jayco battery warranty

Hello all,

I have a Jayco 32bhds. Less than 2 years old with two house batteries.

The batteries are not maintaining a charge. I have yet to contact the dealer as its winter and my unit is in storage. I have removed the batteries though, and can't get them to hold a charge.

Is this something covered by warranty? At least prorated, or should I contact the battery company.

Any advice, assistance would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Ensign

The dealer provides the batteries and not Jayco. The batteries also will be covered under the manufactures warranty.

Question, what maintenance have you preformed on the batteries? Have you checked the fluid levels? If you have to add any water make sure only to use Distilled Water.

Regrettably many marine and deep cycle batteries only have a 1 year warranty, unlike automotive batteries which have prorated multi year warranties. Check with dealer to be sure. It could also be a converter issue if both batteries will not charge.

One year warranty, darn, these things are expensive.

I will check with the dealer, hopefully they will help me out.

Replace them with a pair of 6 volt golf cart batteries. These are the only true deep cycle batteries out there.

I think Sam's Club sells deep cycle batteries with 2 or 3 year warranties. I started purchasing all of the batteries for my TT from them.

Here is an example, Interstate batteries are 12 and 18 months:

Autozone 1 year on marine batteries:
(I`ve experienced the one year deal both at Autozone and Wal-mart)

Many RV`s do not come equipped with true deep cycle batteries, but rather marine/starting batteries.
True deep cycle batteries may carry a longer warranty.

I was thinking the COSTCO/SAMS CLUB GC2 Batteries warranties were longer as well... Found these two photos on google search just showing a 12 month warranty.. Don't know how many years back these photos represent...

I think they have the short warranties because they are used for so many different purposes and in many cases they sit around long periods between uses, unlike car batteries.
