    Each Costco has different inventories on those batteries so you need to check other stores. I don't think they are as good as the Trojan batteries I used but they jumped in price a lot.

    I just use the Pro Sport 20 hooked up as a 12v. I get home and at the advise of Dave with Earmark, i turn my ACR system to OFF and plug in the charger, this way it charges the 2 6V batteris <as 12v> and then the house seperate.

    When running the boat i let the ACR do the work.

    Just remember hook 1 positive term of 1 battery to the Negative of the other battery, and then pretend those two posts don't exist. Don't hook anything else to those 2 posts.

    Then your golden LOL

    Ok I am going to run them completely independent of the boats charging system and just charge them while at home.

    That works too, i"d suggest just making sure the home charger has a computer to sense the voltage/amperage requirements, and slow charge them. I tend to just leave the boat plugged in as much as possible at home but sometimes i get lazy and forget for a few days LOL

    This what i got off the internet for the Costco GC2 that are made by Johnson Controls.
    GC2 US Battery Red Top:
    Amp-Hour at the 20 hour rate: 220 Ah
    Minutes at 75 amps: 110 minutes
    Minutes at 25 amps: 425 minutes

    I also like "Battery Tender" chargers and use them for my smaller batteries. They don't overcharge.
