    I put this in my 23 foot 5th wheel RV travel trailer. The battery works the front jacks just fine and seems to hold a charge quite well. The battery I replaced was shot, so anything is a improvement. Just to make sure, I had the tech check the status of the new battery BEFORE I left the store. He didn't mind and I KNEW when I left I had a good battery.

        Ordered it on line, it was ready within a half hour for pickup at my local store, put right into my boat, and I was fishing 45 minutes later. It doesn't get any better than that! (Both the product and Advance Auto.)

                        I put this battery in a air cooled vw. Slightly hopped up motor. Battery starts it just fine. I started it today with the temperature hovering just above freezing. I bought this battery because it was cheaper and so far I dont have any complaints.

                          what is best for long term storage of these?
                          can they be simply disconnected and left in boat over winter.

                            I'd be happy to help you with that! The best storage option would be to remove the battery and keep it in a garage or another area free from elements. If your boat does not have the battery exposed to the elements, then you can leave it there as well. The garage would be the best option so that you can check the battery condition and trickle charge it if need be.

                        • Q:

                          Hello I just purchased this battery for a replacement for my battery back up for my sump pump. I just purchased this home and this was the same specs of what battery was already in it. But I noticed the existing battery looked to leak it was wet on the top and there was white bubbles of acid in the bottom of the box so that's why I purchased this new autocraft battery. The back up system I have the battery hooked up to is a Little Giant sump pump backup system 12v output. On the back of the charger which I noticed after the fact says Charge only lead acid type rechargeable batteries. Other types may burst. So my question is will the battery I bought work for this system. Is it rechargeable? I know it lead acid type. Anyinput would help.

                            If the shoe fits, wear it! Since the battery specs exceed your 325 CCA requirement, it will work fine so long as you verify:
                            1. Its case size dimensions fit your allocated box and hold-down.
                            2. Terminal configuration - Battery post connectors size/type, and left or right for +/- cables.
