12v AGM Battery Manufacturer

Time to replace stock batteries on my 212QBW. After much frustrating research on the internet Iím focused on two 12v 100ah AGM set up.

1. We dry cam about 40% of trips (weekend)
2. Currently no solar, but entertaining adding in future

My question is any strong feelings on battery mfgs.? Realizing this is potentially a classic ďFord/ChevyĒ debate Iíve considering the following manufacturers:
Renogy, Weize, Trojan and Universal Power Group. Any thoughts or experiences greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Bill

I ran three Walmart 12 V 100 amp AGM batteries in the toy hauler for years. Never had a problem with them and they kept things going for 10 days or more on elk hunts and family back country camping with the daily touch up with the genny. You can get the same results with Costco's batteries.



Don't go nuts on electric use and a weekend with two should be no problem.



And you are correct, this is the Ford/Chevy debate because most all are Chinese anyway.

Renogy are awesome batteries. That's the way I'd go. Plus, they're easy to find.

Lifeline are exceptional, but expensive.

I replaced one and added another one of these. It's gone up $50 since I bought them in 2018.

Thanks for the replies/suggestions. I took a look at the Jayco manual for the 212QBW and it states two series 27 batteries, I bought this camper new and didn’t think to check at the time but dealer had installed series 24. Oh well, shame on me…

It's going on its 8th season and still going strong.

Look up the ratings and decide. Renogy is based in the USA and most of the company employees work in the USA, but it looks like their manufacturing is done in China, specifically in the cities of Wuxi China and Suzhou China. They are probably doing what Japan did in the past, make better products and charge less for it
