What kind of WW do you have? Make sure you have enough room for the 6v before you buy them.

The reason I don't have 6V is because 2 of them won't fit in the battery box of my cabover, plus the $$$$. I originally read about them on RV.net, too.
Costco in Socal sells the 6v golf cart batts for $62 each. You should be able to find batery boxes at a golf cart repair place.

I lot of guys suggest the better setup then mine would be two 6v golf cart batteries in series as has been already posted before...The golf cart batteries are made to provide more amps for longer, and can go to a deeper discharge and not hurt them, that's the advantage.
But there are heavier and take up more room, so not every trailer can accomidate them.
At a minumum, I would run my setup, and if you have the room then the golf cart style would be better...

6Vs are about the same size as a group 24 12V, only difference is they're taller. 6Vs have half the number of cells/plates compare to the 12Vs, the cells/plates are much larger compare to the 12Vs. When you wire 2 6Vs together in series, it becomes one big 12v. Some wire 2 12Vs parallel, but you still have the smaller cells/plates because they're 12Vs.
Whats the deal with 6V? Why are they better?

Uh...yeah...you wouldn't want to wire them in series...
My two 12v batts hold up rather well....
